IN FAST COMPANY


   On Saturday 2/3, the USA National Cross Country Championships were held at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee, the same course where the Key West and Marathon runners competed in the Florida State High School Championships back in November.

   When such a championship is in your back yard, you gotta go, right?  Well, 650 miles is a big back yard, but KW’s Owen Allen made the trip to watch the best of America’s best race for America’s biggest XC prize.

   The races provided thrills, but so did the post-race as Owen got a few photos with some top USA Track and Field athletes:

UPCOMING EVENTS


KEYS 100: FINISH LINE

If you’re not participating in the Keys 100 in May, please plan on lending a hand.  KWSR covers the finish line for more than 24 hours.  Set-up begins on Saturday morning, with runners crossing the line from late-afternoon Saturday till midday on Sunday.  We cannot have too many people for this, and KWSR receives a good donation from the event for our support, so please plan on helping out.


RUN ON A KWSR TEAM

If you’re running in the Keys 100, run well.  If you’re looking to run, but don’t have a team, we ought to be able to put together a KWSR squad.  As the pre-eminent running club in Monroe County, we should be represented.  If you’d like to run and hope to find some teammates, let us know and we’ll try to get a group together.


There is also a team competition in the 6th Annual Duval Street Mile on 4/26 (7 pm).  It’s NOT a relay. Each runner runs the full mile, and the 3-person team scores are tallied based on finish place.  Prizes are awarded in 10 categories.  More info at DuvalStreetMile.com.





KWSR MERCHANDISE


 #1)  Clearance Sale!  Old styles, limited sizes, gonna clear ‘em out.  $5 each!  We’ll bring the stockpile to Sombrero (3/3) and to Menendez Miler (3/10).  Grab a few.  Mother’s Day and Father’s Day will be here before you know it.


 #2)  Position to be filled:  Merchandise Maven.  We need someone who can bring the stuff to races and sell it.  The Clearance Sale (see above) will help streamline this task immensely.  A great candidate would be a loyal significant other who comes with you to your races and would love to have something to do in that time window between finish and awards.  Contact any of us (see below) if you want more info.
