Free Fall 5k Registration is Open!

This is a fast and flat out and back USATF certified course.  It starts and ends at the Rochester Community Center.  We have indoor bib pick up, race day registration, post-race snacks, and bathrooms, so you can run this race in any weather conditions!

Our race benefits the Homeless Center for Strafford County & Jerry’s Food Pantry. This year we are partnering on race day with End 68 Hours of Hunger and SOS Recovery which will both receive additional race proceeds.


July 19th Ice Cream Run

An Ice Cream run is scheduled for July 19th starting at 6 PM. Yes, my schedule is good as well. Everyone is welcome (members and non-members). Club members get their ice cream for free. As a reminder club members receive 20% off running shoes at Red’s Shoe Barn and 15% off at Running – even on sale items. Family memberships are only $25! If there are folks planning to show up on July12th, the 3 mile run would be up and back on Franklin Street which goes by the Rochester Cemetery. I will post a reminder the beginning of next week for the 19th. Thanks. Thom (President RR)

Update on Ice Cream Run

Update on Ice Cream Run scheduled for this Thursday, July 12th. I have a commitment (so does Regina) that I did not think was on this day (my bad). The options are: 1) to have someone who was planning on attending step up and help with the run and Ice Cream purchase (RR would provide funds) or 2) reschedule to the following Thursday, July 19th. If anyone is able to help on Thursday please comment of the Facebook post or contact me.  Thom

BAA-Boston Marathon Bibs

RR was unsure, like many running clubs, if we would be receiving any Boston Marathon Invitational bibs this year.  The Boston Athletic Association (BAA) told clubs last year that due to more individuals qualifying for Boston and running for charities, fewer invitational bibs would be available in the future. However, we got a late surprise from the BAA. RR received two invitational bibs in January. It is such an honor that we have received the bibs again this year.  Last year the Officers decided that if bibs were received, they would be awarded by the Officers based on the member volunteer times and club participation. The Officers offered the bibs to the club members with the most volunteer hours and Bill Leonard and Regina Flynn accepted. Congratulations to both for all the work they have done for the club!
