.The Bangers continue to crush the fall racing season! Last weekend, Ruby E Perlmutter ran the Cape Cod Marathon, completing her first road marathon. Bobby McDonough also ran the Loco Marathon in Newmarket, New Hampshire last weekend and set a new personal record. Tess Harvey knocked out yet another ultra at the Stone Cat 50-Miler in Ipswich! Just this weekend, the Bangers were represented at the New York City Marathon by Em Grover (running her 11th marathon!), Tony Chin (10th marathon!) Keara Thomas (a speedy first marathon!), and Mark Zurlo (with a PR!). Yesterday, Kate Mroz ran the Colt State Park Half Marathon in Rhode Island, also for a PR! And finally, Jenna Castro rocked the Battlegreen 10K in Lexington yesterday, with a first-in-division win. 

IF YOU HAVE RACE RESULTS and have not yet submitted them (even if you were mentioned above), please submit them here.

The Grand Prix is NOT totally up to date (we need your submissions), but as of the last update, Kerry Phelan and Mark Zurlo are in the leads, with Em Grover and Bobby McDonough close behind. We are SO CLOSE to our goal of 150 total participants - currently at 143. Let's get to 150!! 

There are only a few more Grand Prix races left this year, so if you have your eye on a shiny Banger trophy, don't forget to sign up and add your name here.|
Coming up next is the Cambridge Half Marathon on Sunday 11/19. We have a huge team of runners at this one - enough for a VIP beer tent, so if you're on the fence, there is one more reason to sign up! We also have a team of volunteers managing a water stop (and cheering) at this race; if you're interested in volunteering, more info is here

The final races of the year are both holiday 5Ks in December: the Winter Classic (Sunday, 12/3) and Yulefest (Sunday, 12/10). These are both great races and we usually have a good showing of Bangers at both every year, so don't miss them! FB events for Yulefest here, and for the Winter Classic here.
