WCRC Athletes of the Month for April – Heidi Hatch and Chris Grange!
Heidi did The Double, completing The Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge! Heidi ran Boston in 3:42:06 and 6 days later ran The Big Sur Marathon in 4:07:30. (long) Way to go Heidi!
Chris followed up last year’s impressive Boston debut by shaving 7 minutes off his time and running 2:39:28 at this year’s race! In addition to constantly improving his marathon PR, Chris has a secondary goal to corner the Circle Bucks market – that’s going well, too!
T-shirt contest winner, Rick Bayko! Rick models his mint condition 1972 USA Olympic Trials t-shirt which easily won this month’s oldest race t-shirt theme. Next month’s “most unique” theme will be changed for obvious reasons!
Congratulations to Heidi, Chris and Rick, try not to spend your haul of Circle Bucks all at once!
