Thanks to the Calderon Family for bringing our tents to the meet last week. They will be out of town after this meet so I need help getting them to the meet at Central Park on September 18th. If you can help please let me know asap!!

We are in need of "Turtles" to follow all races. As you saw there are a lot of new slower runners that need help near the end of each race and next week we will run most age groups in separate girls and boys races. We also need rabbits to lead the races with either running or bikes
