Post-Boston Banger Update!

Huge congratulations to all of the Bangers who ran the Boston Marathon on Monday: Bobby McDonough, Laura Huselton, Melody Mallozzi, Meghan Burns, Declan Healy, Seth Wolfman, Patrick McMahon, Em Grover, Mark Zurlo, Rachel Silverman, Mark Hagopian, and Kevin Koncilja. All of you did a fantastic job on Monday and it was so great seeing you at Bangers cheer stations! Collectively through the 2017 Boston Marathon, Bangers raised more than $68,900 for charity organizations, and that is amazing.

In other April racing news, we had a full weekend of 5Ks with Jess O'Neill running the Prison Break Dash in Lorton, VA; Kylee Drugan-Eppich at the Marina's Miles 5K in Durham, NH; Kyle Dooley at the Sprint 4 Super Saturdays 5k in Braintree; and Elyse Archila at the Dean Dash in Franklin, MA. Congrats Jess on the 5K PR! 

If you've been racing, please submit your results! 

We have a Grand Prix race coming up this Sunday at the Run for the Troops 5k! The bus leaves from Oak Square at 7 AM. There's space on the bus if anyone who's not running wants to come anyway!

The next upcoming Grand Prix race is the North Face Endurance Challenge the weekend of June 10-11 at Wachusett Mountain. This is ALL trail races, with distances ranging from 5K to 50 miles. It's a great way to try your first trail race or ultra! 

Also in June is the annual 26x1 Club Challenge Relay! We're still awaiting info on a date...but keep it in mind, because you won't want to miss it. More info coming soon.

You can see the full list of Grand Prix races here. Add your name when you sign up!

Tomorrow (Saturday) join us for a four-mile Donut Run to Union Square Donuts in Brookline! Meet at 9:30 AM in Oak Square. Thanks Jonna for organizing! 

Next weekend, the Bangers are volunteering at the Charles River Watershed Association's Earth Day Cleanup. This is happening next Saturday from 9 AM - 12 PM and is organized by Theresa Donohoe! More info here:
