Muskoka Algonquin Runner News

There has been a great deal of action in the Muskoka running community this spring.

Runners have raced (Around the Bay, Yonge Street 10K, Sporting Life 10K, Toronto Marathon and Half Marathon).

Runners have trained for future races (Band on the Run, high school track season, etc)

Runners continue to meet Tuesday mornings at 6:30 am and Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.

Good luck to all high school runners heading to GBSAA Track and Field Finals Wednesday May 22, 2013.  This is a qualifying race for the OFSAA Regionals.  Go Hoyas!

Don’t forget you can buy MARS gear at The Sportlab (Tech Shirts $25, Hats $15, Singlets $27).

Our friends at The Limberlost Challenge have offered us four free entries for their July 13 race.  Two entries are reserved for teenagers.  To qualify for a chance to win these entries simply attend 4 MARS runs between April 2 and the end of May.  The runs are Tuesdays 6:30-7:30 am (meeting at Conroy Track) and Sundays 9 am (meeting at Arrowhead Park lower gates). Once you have attended four runs, contact us through the Contact tab at this website and let us know.  We will draw the four winners June 1 and then let you know.

We are looking for anyone interested in running an aid station at Band on the Run.  It’s an easy job, a great way to participate in the run even if you can’t run.

Finally, the club is looking for runners interested in being the “in charge runner” at workouts in the summer beginning July 8, Tuesdays (6:30-8:00 am), Thursdays(5:30-7:00 pm) and Sundays(9:00-10:30 am).  Head to the Calendar Tab to see what dates already have a  leader.  If you live on the water and want to share a dip with other runners, sign up for a Sunday.  Runners will bring their own eats.

See you on the roads.
