Marching to Spring(burst)!
Finally we have some decent snow just as it turns to spring. You may remember that we dubbed Springburst 8K as "Snowburst" a couple of years ago when we had a freak snowfall during the race. With the race on April 28 this year, we are hoping for nice spring conditions for our signature race which brings runners from around the state to compete in this MDRRCA Grand Prix Series race. Sign up now to take advantage of discount rates. Registration fees will go up after March 30.
Many mighty volunteers are needed for Springburst - course marshals, timers, shirt and bib handlers, water stop folks, helpers to set up, break down and tidy up the Greenbelt Park race route after we finish - all are needed to make Springburst a great event. Note: Only the shirt handlers, set up and break down folks may volunteer and also run the race. Sign up to volunteer.
Let's help spruce up Greenbelt Park for Springburst at the annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup day on April 14. Register here. Wear your PGRC shirt or hat.
Speaking of volunteering, on May 5, PGRC will be out at the Tots 2 Teens Expo, contact Yvonne to volunteer. For other club volunteer opportunities, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Chris.
We had a busy February with training programs, the Club Challenge, and social activities including a social running and wine event "Run Your Heart Out." We welcome your ideas for other social events - please contact our Social Coordinator Fai if you'd like to help plan an event.
