Thanks to all of you who had a part in this year's BFF race. We had over 90 0 participants in the 5K/10K, Kids Run, and Tribute Walk. 
Race proceeds benefit Caring In Our Lifetime and 21st Century C.A.R.E. and totaled over $12,000.00! 
Mark your calendar for the next BFF, Sept. 16-17, 2015.

Did you know there along with the Executive Board, there are several committees working hard to make our club successful?! Do you want to get more involved with the club? Consider joining one of the committees. See the list to the left and let us know if you are 
interested in serving .


Current Committee Need: The Club treasurer is looking for help from 2 people to assist us in the oversight of reporting club financial documentation and reporting. If you are willing to assist the club with your time and knowledge, it would be greatly appreciated.

While no direct financial reporting experience is required, it would certainly be beneficial. The tasks would be review of transactions in Quickbooks & online bank statements and report  any recommendations found back to the treasurer  and the Board if necessary.
Again, If you are willing to assist the club in this, it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Matthew Cutright if interested-

The Burro Loco Stache Dash is a rolling 5K trail fun run filled with the finest mustaches (grown, painted, or pasted) on the Grand Strand! Runners of all fitness levels are welcome; so run, walk, crawl, or salsa, your way to the finish line and enjoy an adult beverage post-race at Burro Loco (included with your registration). The largest team can kick the keg, for FREE. We're your 

excuse to let loose and do a little good for the community. 

All proceeds benefit SOS Autism Health Care, Inc. in the Myrtle Beach Area. Their mission is to partner with our community to provide hope, care and assistance to our neighbors.

Palmetto 200 Relay

Congratulations to these club members for completing the relay this past weekend!
Pacing Anyone?

Are you worried about achieving a certain time goal in your next half or full marathon. Many races now offer pacers, runners leading you to the finish line in a certain time. Stick with that pacer and you may just PR. Several of our club members were part of the pacing team at the Wrightsville Beach Half and Full Marathon this past weekend. I'm sure the race participants had a great time with our crowd!
Stop by Black Dog Running Company and pick up yours today! Enjoy the fresh, new colors for just $10.00 each!

Thanks to our sponsors!
