The Winners Circle Running Club is organizing a series of monthly summer runs followed by summer cookout/pool parties (with emphasis on the summer cookouts/pool parties). The runs will be moderate in distance, with the opportunity to run short or not at all. The club will provide the food for the grill, the host will provide the course and pool, and you can BYO your favorite beverages.
The dates are:
- June 30th – host Scott Walsh - Newburyport
- July 28th – hosts Sharon and Tom Chase – Newburyport
- August 25th – hosts Dave and Maureen Carroll, Newburyport
Details will be announced each month via email and the website.
Winners Circle Running Club – Summer Run (optional) & Pool Party & Cookout
The third of three monthly WCRC summer runs / pool parties / cookouts will be Saturday, August 25th, hosted by Dave & Maureen Carroll at 15 Pheasant Run Drive, Newburyport, MA:
The run will commence at 1:00 PM. The route will be an out and back on some of the same course that Scott Walsh had at the first summer run. Easy to pick your distance-shorter or longer. First 1 ½ miles are on Hale street which can have some light traffic with a sidewalk a mile into the run on the right. After that rolling country hills with an occasional vehicle.
There will be water/Gatorade on the route for runners going longer distances at about 4 or so miles out.
Mandatory Summer Party
Large refreshing, in-ground pool, yard for lawn games. Deep end is 8′, with 3’ shallow area at the other end when you finish your run (or after others finish their runs – probably around 2:00 – 2:30 PM). BYOT (towel)! Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs.
The WCRC is sponsoring this summer run series, so we’ll have burgers/dogs, other grille items, munchies, refreshments, and some tunes. Due to liability issues for both the WCRC and the host, this is a BYOB event. Guests are also welcome to bring a dish or dessert to share if they would like.
Rain date, Sunday August 26th, 1:00 PM
For planning purposes, runners and/or partiers should let Dave & Maureen know in advance if they plan on coming. Again, the WCRC is providing the grill items so we need a reasonable count to avoid wasting a large amount of food or alternatively running out of food in the first hour.
