Muskoka Algonquin Runners is excited to announce that membership renewals are now available at our Membership tab. Download one of three membership forms (outlined at page), complete the form and go to The Sportlab to pay. We have kept our fees at the same rate as last year, which is the relevant Athletics Ontario fee plus $5. This means the least expensive membership is a bargain at $20 per year. Those runners who will be running in Athletics Ontario races (cross country and track) will need to purchase a Competitive or Masters membership. It is possible to upgrade a membership part way through the year. Memberships cost the same regardless of when you join so there is no benefit to waiting (Athletics Ontario does not pro-rate membership fees for part years).
MARS would also like to thank The Sportlab (Lowell Greib and Katherine Ahokas) and Pharmasave (Troy Cox) for sponsoring Muskoka Algonquin Runners in 2014. We are fortunate to have community business support of running.
MARS will be offering new (optional) fancy gear for 2014 made by Champion Systems. The gear is available for purchase when you complete your membership form. There will likely be an opportunity to put in a future order as well if there is interest (requires order of 10+). The Standard Gear package consists of a high quality Tech Shirt and Socks for $60. The MARS Team Kit consists of a Tech Shirt, Racing Singlet, Training Jacket and Socks for $195. Pictures of the new gear will be posted on the BLING tab of our website in the next week and will be available as samples at The Sportlab in the near future.
Several crazy runners braved the weather Tuesday morning for a stride workout. The next organized run is Thursday at noon from Highway 60 Tim Horton’s for a long run. The first mile will be a social mile. The details of meeting place for Saturday 6:30 am run will be posted on our Calendar tab by Friday evening.
The next run in the Orillia Snowflake Series is this Sunday December 15. Details here.
The next Run To The Pub event is Thursday December 19 at 4:30 pm at River Mill Park for a run and 5:30 pm at On The Docks Pub. Come for either but bring headlamps if you are running! Non club members are welcome to join us and learn more about the club.
See you on the roads and perhaps under the snow!
