Monthly Club Meeting

October 2019

October's meeting will have the social buffet dinner and be followed by a brief public club meeting. Next on the agenda will be an open forum discussion on MARATHONS, as the feature for the October meeting has been officially christened 'Marathon Month'.

So bring your training tips, advice, personal experiences, observations, accomplishments and questions about Marathons to the club meeting in October.

** The general public is welcome to attend **

Meeting was well attended and many lively discussions were had in addition to the current and planned items of interest that were brought to the fore and tabled for approvals. We held 3 raffles, one for dinner, an ORC cap, and an entry into the 42nd Police Chase on the 6th, our race-of-the-month, (see below).

Representatives from O.C.C.C. were present to help us to understand the state of the sport at the college. This information was much appreciated by the attendees.

Culmination of the evening were discussions of the Marathon and who better than Bob Nordman who edged out everyone with his whopping 108* Marathons to give us perspective on the journey.

Thanks to everyone who came out to attend.

* Ask Bob about the asterisk.

'Race of the Month' for October 2019

The 42nd Kelly
Memorial Police Chase

Once a year members of the New York State Troopers take time out of their busy schedule to enjoy food, conversation, and a little athletic competitiveness with fellow members of the community. All are welcome so bring your kids, your family, new runners, old runners, bring everyone! Free grilling and sandwiches after the race.

Hosted by the state police, it's a great event to bring your younger runners to while the 40k bike race, 5k, and 10k races take place at the park.

5k is also the Orange Runners Club
Grand Prix Race #10.
Pick up your GP Pin at this event.

In memory of, Trooper James A. Kelly, Jr. and others who gave their lives
too early in the line of duty. Please take a moment to consider these others, here.
