2016 Wicked Grand Prix Change Annoucement

 

 

The 2016 Kupenda Trail Race was cancelled by the race directors. The Wicked Grand Prix committee will be replacing this with the Stride for Healthy Communities 5K on June 4, 2016 in Wakefield, Mass.

The committee was disappointed to not be able to replace with another trail race, but wanted to be sensitive to distance and timing. Funds raised benefit the bariatric program, cardiology services, the Hope’s Fund supporting cancer patients, and the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network. We’re excited to offer this in the series as a replacement.

Updated details about the series as well as results for the April and May Grand Prix races are here.

If you have any questions about the series, feel free to contact TR Ramsdell or Don Gallucci.

Register today for the Tufts 26×1 Club Challenge Relay!

 

Join us on Saturday June 25 for the Tufts 26×1 Club Challenge Relay, hosted by the Somerville Road Runners. We are looking to put together two teams this year–one competitive and one open and are looking for at least 52 runners to take on one of the fastest miles they’ll run this year to help the club!

The best part? This relay is free and one of your perks of membership!

Tennille Doyle will be our club captain with assistance from Mike Paulin and Yvette Tetrault. If we have an abundance of runners, we’ll look into a third team. To be clear–we want YOU to run! Yes, you! Fast, slow, old, young–as long as you are a current Wicked member we want you to help us with this challenge!

The deadline to register with Tennille is June 5. Please email tennilledoyle@gmail.com with your name and average mile time (or 5K if you don’t know your mile time). Tennille, Mike, and Yvette will be crafting teams from those that respond!
