Club Breakfast Run – UPDATE

Due to the uncertainty of the weather for this Saturday morning, we have decided to cancel our Breakfast Run at Fresh Vibes and to look at a new date to reschedule. Thanks for your understanding!


The club is having a breakfast run March 3rd, 8:00 am, at Fresh Vibe’s Cafe.  They are located at 45 N. Main St. in Rochester. We’ll run 3 miles (or longer if you want), returning to Fresh Vibes for breakfast.

Dopey Challenge

RR wants to congratulate Kevin Scott and Cliff Parkinson for completing the Dopey Challenge at Disney World in January. The Dopey challenge consists of running a 5k, 10k, 1/2 Marathon and full Marathon, over four consecutive days.  Well done!  Who’s idea was to do the Dopey Challenge???  We’ll have more about the Challenge and some photos in the next newsletter.  


Free Fall Classic 5k Charity Donations

I am so pleased to let RR members know that our first donation of $1,500 has been received by the Homeless Center of Strafford County.  This week I will be dropping off a $1,500 check to Jerry’s Food Pantry. This year we are also donating $100 to End 68 Hours of Hunger.  This is a volunteer effort to provide backpacks of food to students in Rochester schools to ensure they have food over the weekend when they do not have access to school meals.  Thanks so much to all the volunteers who made this race a success. The Free Fall Classic has truly become a community event. This is how a RR membership supports a club activity. We cannot do it without all your help.

Officers 2018

During our December Christmas Party/meeting, election of Officers took place for 2018.  After serving the club for the past two years, Ken Houle, Vice President, and Bethany Robinson, Secretary, decided not to continue for the this year. I cannot say enough good things about the work both of them did for RR.  Currently the Officers are; Thom Flynn, President, Mike Andrews, Treasurer, and Bill Leonard, Web-Master. Bill has been gracious in offering to help keeping track of memberships. We continue to welcome any club member who may be interested in filling either Ken or Bethany’s position.
