We can look forward to participating in not 1, but 2, USATF National Masters championship races in our own “backyard”. The James Joyce Ramble on April 30th in Dedham, MA is once again the National Masters 10K championship. Last year we fielded a men’s team (70-79). Let’s aim for fielding more 3-person teams this year in any of the ten-year age groups! In USATF National Masters championship races runners can only be on one team and you need Mike Pelletier to submit the teams.
Also, our USATF-NE Association is hosting the National Masters XC 5K. This race will occur on October 15th at Franklin Park, a location famous for XC competition. Even if you have never run XC before, please consider moving out of your comfort zone to try something new… it is fun! You do need to be a USATF member to score at both the Ramble and the XC, so please remember to join or renew your USATF membership: http://www.usatfne.org/member/
