First Spring Running Series Results
Congratulations to Liz Clabaugh for winning the first Spring Running
Series handicapped race. We had a nearly overwhelming 17 runners,
including three who drove up from Las Cruces!
Please recall that the next race will have a post-race brunch. Since I
have previously mentioned that all races start at the pool, we will
stick to that, finishing at the brunch site. Directions will be provided.
Ex-Socorroan Runs 3nd Annual Yokosuka 1/2 Marathon
Shingo Date took 1 hour 55 minutes 32 seconds (gross time) to complete the race in
even chillier (a liittle below 50F) and more gusty conditions
when compared to last year, but said that he was was glad that he completed the race.
Good Job Shingo and nice outfit!
Cathy Places Fifth at SOMA 1/2 IM
It was nearing record highs in Tempe (and that's saying a lot) but
Cathy kept her cool and finished fifth out of 30 in her age group! Her
final time was 5:37:11 and full results for all of the SOMA races can
be found at thier timing website.
Did you know the current U.S. record holder in the Scheeb is an SRS member?
That may have sounded a bit weird, but it's true. On a recent trip to New Zealand, Mark Bottjer took a turn at the Schweeb in Rotorua,
NZ. When he stepped out of the recumbent contraption, err, the
Schweeb, he was holding the U.S. record at 1:08.92, only 5 seconds off
the world record!
Spring Running Series
It's time for the Spring Running Series again! As usual, it will be
handicapped, meaning runners start at different times in order to all
finish together (theoretically).
The race dates:
- January 26th
- February 23rd (with a post-race brunch)
- March 8th
- April 12th (with a post-race brunch)
Trail Work Coming Up
We expect to LEAVE the coffee shop parking lot by 11 or 12 (stay tunde) on the 19th of January. Please bring comfortable clothes, some water (we will have some too), and GLOVES! The area of
the trail work is near the Camino Real Heritage Center (35 miles south of Socorro).
Winter Time Trials
Four 10k timed bike training rides.
SSR will set up the course, the starter, and the timer. These are
non-competitive and each day requires a $5 daily USA Cycling membership
if not already a member.
See the announcement.
