February 25th is the last day to order Winter Series apparel and have it delivered to Northeastern 5k, the final race of the series. Orders can be placed by visiting YRRK Winter Series Apparel Store.
Who is ready for the Springettsbury 10k this weekend? It seems the weather always throws us a surprise for this race. We’ve seen rain, ice, and spring-like temps over the years. Looks like plenty of sun with a chill on Saturday! PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR ASSIGNED BIB!
ADDRESS UPDATE – if you are using GPS, 1409 Williams Road York, PA 17402 will get you there.
Apparel orders will be inside at the registration table just waiting to go home with those who ordered. As always, I’ll be there at 7:30 to get you registered or get you set up with a replacement bib if needed.
Did you know that you can view YRRC race photos on our club Flickr page? Today the photos from the John Rudy Park 5 Miler, part of the Winter Series, were posted. You can see all of the photo albums at this link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/yorkroadrunnersclub/albums.
Enjoy the pictures!
We hope you’ll follow us on our new website. We’re working hard to make it useful for our YRRC members, but we have a lot to learn and a lot to update.
Yesterday (12/29/2018) was our Winter Series John Rudy Park 5 Miler and 1 Mile event. We had more than 300 in the main event and more than 100 in the 1 Mile event!! The results can be found by clicking or tapping on this website menu at YRRC Winter Series/WS Results/Winter Series 2018-19 Results. We will keep updating as the series progresses.
Planning for the 2019 White Rose Run 5 Miler continues. You may wonder why we haven’t posted a date yet. Our board and White Rose committee members believe that it’s best NOT to have the event in downtown York City the same date as York’s Bike Night. The Bike Night date was announced only two weeks ago, just before the holidays, and they have selected 9/21/2019. Now we are working to confirm our White Rose date. It looks like it will be either 9/28/2019 or 10/5/2019 and we will announce as soon as possible. The White Rose Run information on this website and on runsignup is NOT updated, and will be soon.
Anyone interested in volunteering? We’d like to fill several positions:
Events Coordinator: This person will primarily continue our tradition of the Beginner Runners program. Hal Darr has led this program for many years, actually decades, and feels it’s time to step down. We hope this important tradition will continue, but everything the club does, including this, requires club member leadership.
Sponsor Coordinator: This person will, with the assistance of the YRRC Board and the White Rose committee, identify and coordinate with potential sponsors. Sponsorship is used to defray the costs in putting on the White Rose Run and other programs, including providing funds to donate to the charity that the White Rose supports.
Web Administrator: Our current web administrator, Ned Einsig, will be moving on at the end of 2019, so we’re looking for someone to learn during 2019 and take over the job in 2020. We’re using WordPress and runsignup. Interested?
And we can always use people as volunteers at our events, or to work on YRRC committees such as the White Rose committee or the Winter Series committee.
If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you are not a YRRC member, we hope you’ll sign up at: runsignup.com/Club/PA/York/YorkRoadRunnersClub
Hello Winter Series participants! Thank you for participating in this year’s series and making it such a huge success. So far, the weather has cooperated and we certainly hope that trend will continue. Here are the results for each of the events and we’ll keep it updated as the series progresses.
The current Series Results:
Here are the results from the Dover 10 Miler on November 11, 2108
Here are the results from Spring Valley 4 Miler on November 25, 2018
Here are the results from Dallastown 10K on December 15, 2018
Please remember this race, and the remainder of the Winter Series races, will take place on Saturday mornings. The one mile begins at 8:35am and the main event will start at 9:00am.
Thanks to the race director, we will have Amy Good back again this year with her delicious soups at the finish line! McDonald’s of South Queen Street will also provide hot beverages to warm us up.
Saturday morning weather shows showers, but temps should warm a bit over the next few days. We’ll take it!
If you placed an order for Winter Series apparel over the past two weeks, please stop by the registration table to pick up your items.
Here is a link to Clay Shaw’s Dover 10 Miler pictures. It was a beautiful day for the first winter series event and we were happy to see so many people out to run, the largest number at Dover ever.
Spring Valley pictures will be posted soon.
