The ORC Winter Series race was cancelled last week due to weather conditions.
The series continues every Sunday through February 26. The 4 Mile races begin at 10am with racewalkers starting at 9:45. Registration is held on race morning starting at 9am at the beach pavillion near the parking lot. Awards are given each week for overall and age group winners. Fees are $6 per race ($5 for ORC members).
Congratulations and thank you to the ORC Awards Banquet Committee for another outstanding evening. This years theme, Great Gatsby, was a blast. All the runners were dressed to the 9's, some looked like they just came off a movie set! We had an awesome candy bar with candy only from the 20's. With the 20's décor and table settings the place looked the part. An awesome time was had by all.
Thank you to all who helped setting up this super fun party.
Once again Mark Fletcher took some awesome photos of the evening. Check them out at the ORC Photo Gallery.
