Kit, Michaela, and Carla are going to make sure the movie, Town of Runners, is a success. We are working hard on getting this off the ground. Michaela already has lots of good suggestions from her contacts at Georgetown. If anyone has ideas for a place to screen the movie, please let us know. We are looking for a spot in Georgetown, hopefully, for a screening on Saturday afternoon, April 27th.
This should coincide nicely with lots of hoopla surrounding the Nike Women’s Half Marathon the next day.
We are still looking for a Secretary, a racing team Manager, and a track Coordinator to help serve on the WRC’s Board of Directors for 2013.
When: Saturday, November 17th, 9 a.m. until noon. PLEASE RSVP TO CARLA BY NOVEMBER 15TH.
Plant tulips and rake leaves on the National Mall to help keep it pretty!
