LADY STRIDER GROUP RUNS!-
  Just wanted to let everyone know that we'll be starting group runs again each Saturday at 9 am. We hope to have a "half" and "full" marathon group. The goal races are the Scranton Half & the Run for the Red Marathon in the spring. This week, we start with 4 miles for the half-ers, and 8 for those training for the full. You can also just come out and run a few miles. This week we'll meet at Kirby Park. The location may change each week and will be announced on the Lady Striders Facebook Page each week no later than Thursday evening of each week. >>> LADY STRIDERS FACEBOOK PAGE

WANTED RACE DIRECTOR FOR LOCAL XTERRA SERIES-
  WANTED RACE DIRECTOR FOR LOCAL XTERRA SERIES- This was posted on the Wilkes-Barre Racing Facebook page on December 10th-
We know you love our XTERRA trail series. We love hosting it. For 2015, WBR is searching for a race director for the series. If we are unable to find leadership for the series, it will be postponed for 2015. In the interest of transparency, here is our story. We are not giving up on the series; we have had discussions with multiple potential directors that have not yielded a solution. At the moment, our lives require us to be committed in other areas next spring. All details are open for discussion including calendar, fees, and locations. Please email wbracingpa@gmail.com if you are interested in helping lead the events. Lets crowd source a solution to keep such a fun series going and find solid leadership. Keep in mind, this is a well established series with momentum, this would not be a ground up starter project. The foundation is there, we need someone to help execute.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RUNNING CLUBS!
Without Running club support many local races would not be possible. Although many races may not be involved with organizing the race, area running clubs may help promote, organize or even time events. Clubs dues are relatively inexpensive. Many clubs issue newsletters, have parties, group runs, get togethers and issue discount cards for some stores who sell running apparel.
