We've had a ton of racing and also several announcements over the last couple weeks! 29 Bangers came out to Andover for the Run for the Troops 5K last Sunday, including Kerry Phelan, Jonna Green, Jackie Crain, Doug Nickel, Jared Bartlett (PR!), Chris Seero (PR!), Em Grover, Tony Chin, Roux Chin, Mark Zurlo, Layla Ferland (PR!), Patrick McMahon, Theresa Donohoe, Jenna Castro (PR!), Hanna Sobon (PR!), Kevin Koncilja (PR!), Cassie Yeancades, Elyse Archila, Jerry Shaw, Kate Sylvia, and Meredith Tuite. Jared Bartlett also ran the James Joyce Ramble 10K, an awesome race from the Grand Prix last year. Kyle Dooley ran the Run for Charlotte 5K in Braintree, and Kyle Brown ran the Ocean City Island to Island half marathon, both for PR's as well!  

Our next two Grand Prix races are both in June:
On June 10th-11th, the North Face Endurance Challenge trail races are taking place at Wachusett Mountain! There are a variety of distances from 5K to 50 miles, and the races are spread out over both days. This is a great opportunity to challenge yourself for a PL or try trail racing for the first time!
Also happening on Saturday, June 10th is the annual 26x1 Club Challenge Relay. We had two Bangers teams last year, for a total of 52 runners. We're hoping to do the same this year!! Registration isn't open yet, but you can join the Facebook event here for more information when it's available:
Don't miss this race - it's one of the best of the year, and we need as many runners as possible!! 
Full list of Grand Prix races and more information on them:
Last weekend, the Bangers volunteered at the CWRA Earth Day Charles River Cleanup. Theresa Donohoe organized this awesome event, and 15 Bangers came out to help clean up a section of the Charles near Artesani Park in Brighton!
Finally, track workouts are coming back for the summer! Thank you Tess Harvey for getting them started again today. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for future Tuesday track plans.
See you all tomorrow for some Wednesday miles and beers!
