Hello WRC Members!

Spring is just around the corner and there’s lots going on at WRC. We’re welcoming in new board members, getting back onto the track, starting up a new fun run and much, much more.

Long Run–As always, the Sunday long run starts at 8 am on the corner of 33rd and M in Georgetown. Meet for coffee at Dean and Deluca after the run.

We want to hear all of your race results, run related stories, and see your race and run photos so we can share all of your news with the club. Also, if you are interested in writing a race report or another article, let us know. Please e-mail information and photos to Tamma at tammaanne@gmail.com.
