This weekend, we are finally reaching the end of our LONG string of consecutive weekends of Bangers running marathons, half marathons, and ultras!! We have had an amazing season of training and racing this summer and fall, and it has been so cool and inspiring to see what everyone in this club is capable of achieving. Great job everyone and let's keep this up in the future!  
The grand finale features Bethany Crowe, Allison Lorenc, Patrick McMahon, Jenna Castro, Jerry Shaw, Em Grover, Mark Zurlo, and Tony Chin at the Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday. Good luck to all!!
We have two more Grand Prix races this year: the Winter Classic 5k (Sunday, 12/4) and the Somerville Jingle Bell 5k (Sunday, 12/18). Bangers teams have been created for both events, and both are always a blast! Add your name to the roster when you sign up:
