Winter Series results are posted!

I cannot thank everybody enough for their patience at the end of the series when it came to the results. All of you are the reason we stepped in to fill Margaret's shoes - she did an amazing job with the series for many years and we have learned a lot this year. We would love to see everybody out running again for the next Winter Series! We tried a few new things, have a few more tricks up our sleeves and realized we missed a little of what Margaret had built. We will adjust and continue to grow for many years to come! Thank you runners! :)

Since 1994, the York Road Runners Club has faithfully been cleaning both sides of a 2 mile stretch of Grantley Road (between Country Club Rd., and George St.). Under the careful guidance of project initiators Jack Goodwin and Scott Madison, our commitment to keep the road clean has been met.

The job can be completed by 4 people and takes only an hour or two of your Sunday morning. If we each take a turn, we will only have to pick up once every 20 years. Please participate if you can.
