End of Year Updates

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: presidentyrrc@gmail.com.

And if you are not a YRRC member, we hope you’ll sign up at: runsignup.com/Club/PA/York/YorkRoadRunnersClub
