Congrats to the WRC Men’s Masters team of Scott Carrier, Dave Long, Chris Nolin, Brad Gates and Mike Paulin who picked up 2nd place in their respective division in the 31st Annual Mill Cities Relay! This is the highest placement for any of our teams in the seven years that Wicked has competed in the Mill Cities Relay.

Overall all Wicked has a solid day as the club tied for 9th place in the MCR Club Championship with 52 points.
Great job to everyone who ran in this year’s MCR.  Full results can be viewed at www.coolrunning.com. This is a fun event and hopefully more members will be able to take part in this amazing relay next year.  GO WICKED!

Winter Clinic – Just Announced!

Coach Toomey

So I met with Coach Toomey last night to work out some details regarding the Wicked clinics and coaching available to our members. Our original plan when we came up with the concept of having a club coach, was to have it run from April through October. We just finished up our 6 week pilot clinic last night, so I stopped by to see how the response had been. In a word, fantastic. We averaged about 30 runners each Tues night and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

Mike and I had talked about trying to keep the ball rolling and do this year round. The problem with that idea is finding an indoor facility, because no one wants to run track in the snow. Tracks are hard to come by and expensive. Mike has, for several years, done his own clinic at Latitudes in Peabody so I asked him if we could make this work with our coaching agreement that we have with him. We hashed out a pretty good plan that would get Wicked members access to their free coaching, and do it indoors. The only down side, and it’s very small, is that there will be a small facilities fee for use of the track. Each member who wishes to use the indoor track would have to pay $90 for a 10 week program. This is down from the usual $125 fee to participate in the clinic. You are getting the coach for free, you’re just paying for the track. That works out to only $9 per week to run indoors, warm, with no ice or snow. Not too shabby! As you may imagine, space is limited, so sign up as soon as you read this email.

The new clinic will begin on Tues, Dec 16, and will run until Tues, Feb 17. You can sign up at the first meeting, but I would strongly encourage you the sign up early to make sure you get in. Email Mike and tell him you want in Mike Toomey.

I’ll be there, will you? C’mon, who’s in?


Not a member of the Wicked Running Club??? This is just one of many great reasons to join today! Head on over to our membership page and sign up online or by mail in app. You will get the rest of December and all of 2015 as part of your club dues.
