SudburyRocks!! on facebook

NEWSFLASH Wednesday June 28, 2016

After 10 years of cautiously observing the growth and activity of the new phenomena known as facebook, the SudburyRocks!! Organization have finally deemed the social network to be value added and we are jumping on Mark Zuckerberg's train effective immediately. (We don't piss around when decisions are made).

The SudburyRocks!! facebook page is intended to be a forum for club members to talk about whatever they like - related to running or otherwise.

Chat about your races, runs, experiences. Offer tips, complain about the weather, arrange rides to races and get into some good old rip-roaring debates about running shoes, gels and… well, hopefully not politics..

Do all of those really fun things that SRRC members like to do!

The site will be temporarily (and by his own admission, probably rather poorly) moderated by Steve Matusch. Steve asked that I put out the call for some Facebook enthusiast to take it on for the longer term and do a better job!

The SRRC main website will continue to be the official forum for announcing local events and communicating club information. Our standard training schedule remains in effect for our group runs. All comers are welcome.

So Click Here to be welcomed to the NEW Sudbury Rocks Running Club facebook page. We hope you like it.

Good afternoon Runner's and Walker's :)

Good afternoon Runner's and Walker's :)

I am hoping everyone is enjoying the sunshine that we had this past weekend, and are looking forward to the long weekend with big plans :) don't forget the annual fire cracker 5km and kids 1km run in Lively on July 1st at 7pm.

As well the 20 minute challenge is coming up on Wednesday July 13th starting at 6pm so if you have not signed up yet you can online for free on the running room website by doing so you get yourself a free hat as well for completing the 20 mnute challenge.

We are still looking for an instructor for the Half Marathon clinic that is supposed to be starting on Thursday June 30th if anyone knows anyone that could be interested in coaching the clinic please contact the store at 705-523-4664 or simply come into the store and chat with us about the opportunity. As well if you are interested in participating in the clinic you can sign up online or in store I am going to push the start date back a week to July 7th due to still not having an instructor for the class.

As well the weekly quote this week is a personal favoruite of mine "The real purpose of running isn't to win a race, its to test the limits of the human heart" Bill Bowermen

I wish everyone a great rest of your week and long weekend happy running.

Your Sudbury Running Room Team
