coronathon

In support of our athletes who had qualified and registered for the canceled 124th (2020) BAA Boston Marathon and were subsequently provided a small window of opportunity to run on their own on an unspecified and unsupported course a “virtual” version of the Boston Marathon, the WCRC has created Coronathon 2020. Instead of facing the daunting task of running a marathon alone, thirty WCRC marathoners will participate on the same beautiful, safe and fully supported course.

During the aptly named Coronathon; naturally divergent runner pacing will provide extreme social distancing over the 26.2 mile course, and to make this already challenging event even more challenging, all runners will don facial covering while passing through areas where facial covering mandates are in place.

Coronathon updates (split times, finish times, etc.) will be posted to the WCRC’s Facebook page throughout the day and as close to real-time as possible.

WCRC Strong!

A Message to WCRC Members

Greetings Circle Nation!

In this time as we move from stay-at-home orders to social distancing and start to reopen we, as a society, are experiencing a time of great anxiety and uncertainty. As runners, most of us are familiar with some level of the unknown: Will our injury recover in time for our next big race? Have we trained enough (or too much)? Will the race day weather cooperate? Or, will there be a porta-potty when I need it? But one thing has always been true for Winner’s Circle members: we have the love and support of each other to help us get through the tough times.

As always, we are all still here for each other. We hope everyone is well and staying safe. As a social group, we know it is hard to continue be apart from one another and it may be hard for some to stay motivated. So, think about keeping up to date with other members virtually by joining the Winner’s Circle Running Club on Strava, or checking in every Thursday for our posts on Facebook for some challenges and/or to update us on your weekly virtual “club” runs! Post your mileage for the run and/or post a picture with you wearing your WCRC gear – contact Jean Herrick if you need anything new – like a New Balance singlet! And seeing as how many of us are a little competitive, there may even be a little trash talk – but remember, it’s all in good fun!

Speaking of fun (and competition), the Board of Directors is throwing out a challenge to all members! Starting Monday, June 1st keep track of the miles that you are moving – running or walking – sorry, biking is too easy. By all means, bike away, just only log your running or walking miles! Then, when it is safe for us all to gather together, you will report your miles and receive a raffle ticket for every 10 miles logged. At that meeting, we will hold a raffle with some pretty amazing prizes! I know y’all love raffles! Yes, it is on the honor system, but you are members of the Winner’s Circle Running Club so of course you are honorable!

The Board of Directors misses each and every one of you! It goes without saying, if anyone needs anything, please reach out to any of us on the Board of Directors – our emails are on the 2020 Board of Directors page under the “About” tab on the website. And please let us know if you, your family, or if you are aware of another member who has been impacted by COVID-19 as we would like to help in any way we can.

Continue to stay safe, keep in touch, and we all look forward to a time when we can all run together again!

Sincerely,

Winner’s Circle Running Club Board of Directors
