Changes to Winter Race Schedule

There have been some minor changes to the 2013 Race Schedule, and it is now reflected in the on-line version.
Sunday 1/13- New Location of the Greyhound Pub- 139 Water St Worcester. This race is a GO!!! Pot Luck as well.

The Great Stew Chase 15K- we had the 2013 price wrong. It is $15- no shirt. Shirts will be available for SALE on Race Day.

Sunday March 17th- Shamrocks On The Rocks 5K. This race is still being worked. We are working on prizes and shirts- we've removed the $5 price- that will change. More details to come. Stay Tuned!!!

NMC Jingle Bell Fun Run

Sunday Dec 16th was the Jingle Bell Fun Run. Something new this year- it was decided to have this out of a Pub rather than someones home.
We had roughly 75 people brave the ice and snow to do the walk and 5K Run- which was at On The Rocks on the Lake Whalom Lakefront.

Below we have a photo of Santa Claus- we are unsure if he is chasing someone- or is being chased BY someone!!!
