Congratulations to Peter Barbera and Nicole L’Etoile, winners of the 2018 Club Race Series!!
The 2019 series features a few new and unique club races, and simplified scoring system.
The first race is the Oak Hill Tavern Run on Sunday, 1/27 at 2:30pm. Distance TBD, so stay tuned for details. Information will be emailed to the club email list and posted to the Facebook page.
If anyone has recommendations for the April, May, and July races, please email Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All information about the 2019 Club Race Series (complete list of races, and scoring details) can be found here.
The 2018 Summer Youth Track Series will be our 13th annual, and will be held on three Monday nights in July.
The dates for this year’s meets: July 9, 16, and 23.
More information and FAQs about the track series can be found here.
First race of the 2018 Club Race Series is Saturday, 1/27 – the Charlestown Chili 5K, at 1pm, Ninigret Park.
Details of the 2018 series can be found here. There are a few new races, and a few changes this year. Final details can be negotiated at the Super 7K reunion race at the Willows after the race.
The scoring system is similar, but has been changed in a way that increases the reward for participating in low-turnout races.
The best 8 races count, instead of best 6.
There is an exciting new 66-Minute Beach run in October.
See you on the roads!
Congratulations to Lynn McNamara and Peter Barbera for winning their divisions in the 2017 Club Race Series!
2018 Narragansett Running Association Club Series full schedule will be available soon.
The first race in the 2018 series is the Charlestown Chili 5K on January 27.
Our annual Winter Party will be held this Saturday, January 13 at 6pm at Wickford Yacht Club. John Brindamour has graciously agreed to cook a fabulous meal for us again, so food will be provided, but the event is BYOB. If you’re able to make a small donation to help offset the party costs, we’ll have a donation box set up at the party. Contributions of any amount are appreciated, but not required. Be sure to send Mike Tammaro (email@example.com) an old photo for the photo contest. And there will be a big TV tuned to the Patriots game, for those of you who don’t want to miss it.
We will hold a Club Meeting Sunday, January 21 at 9:30am at Bagelz in Wakefield. We’ll discuss opportunities for people to get involved with both the club and the Gansett Half Marathon race committee, so please come out and ask questions and get more information on how you can be a more active participant in the Narragansett Running Association and all that we do for the community.
The Narragansett Running Association is awarding one-time $500 scholarships to two seniors at NHS and two seniors at SKHS planning to further their education in a technical program or in a 2 or 4 year college program.
These scholarships are for students who participated in either Cross Country, Indoor Track or Outdoor Track during their junior or senior years. Applications are available to download here – NarrRunningAssocScholarship or in the school’s Guidance office.
Applicants must be a graduating senior at Narragansett High School or South Kingstown High School, who has participated in either Cross Country, Indoor Track or Outdoor Track during their junior or senior years. Preference will be given to athletes who participated more often in these sports.
Completed applications are due to the Guidance office by May 5, 2017.
The first race of the 2017 Club Race Series was held last weekend, but it’s not too late to join in. There’s one race per month, and completing 6 races will keep you in the standings. All details on the series schedule and rules can be found here – Club Race Series
Current standings, after last weekend’s race:
September is a wrap and October is knocking on our doorstep, and as we usher in a new month, let’s take a moment to reflect upon the awesome achievements of our running group and one person in particular!!!!
This particular issue of the race report is being dedicated a runner whose stellar performances at the Blessing and the Bobby Doyle were overlooked by this writer (her good friend). Only because she is such a lovely person that she has not repeatedly reminded me of this (the way I would, say, several times a day). OK!! I’ll tell you – this talented runner is none other than Bridgette McPhillips, who once again set herself apart from the crowd the other weekend in Connecticut at the Hogback Half Marathon with a smoking’ time of 1:38:53!! Here’s what she’s been up to:
7/29/16 The Blessing of the Fleet 10 Miler: 1st in her AG 1:16:50
8/14/16 The Bobby Doyle 5 Miler: 7th in her AG 38:12:00
9/24/16 The Hogsback Half: 2nd in her AG 1:38:53
Nice work, Bridgette!!! You make us proud! OK, now for the September Race Results:
