Happy New Year, Bangers! 2016 was a great year for our club, with many new members, lots of first half, full, and ultra-marathons, TONS of PRs, and the first-ever appearance of a Bangers singlet on national TV (thanks Patrick McMahon)! You have all accomplished so much and it has been so exciting to watch it happen. I can't wait to see what all of you do in 2017!
Our official first Grand Prix race of the year was today at the Winter Warlock in Plymouth. Congrats to Will Lapsley
who (to my knowledge) was the only Banger who ran the race! If I missed anyone who did run this, please correct me, AND submit your results: bit.ly/bangerresults
If you would like to start catching up to Will's lead in the 2017 Grand Prix, we have more races coming up! Next is the Hyannis Road Race series, which has multiple distances including a 10K, half marathon, full marathon, or four-person full marathon relay teams (6.5 miles per leg). We already have a bunch of Bangers, including at least one relay team, signed up for this! The races are all on Sunday, February 26th and start at 10 AM.
After that is CRAICFEST, the legendary St. Paddy's-themed 5K on Sunday, March 12th in Kendall Square! This is a great course and, as always, ends in a huge after-party in the CambridgeSide Galleria parking garage. If we get enough people we will get a VIP beer tent, so....do it!
Thank you Seth Wolfman for once again building this monster of a spreadsheet to track all of our team races and points!
See you all at the Bang-quet!!
