We are having our annual Club Picnic on Saturday, August 8th, 6:00pm at the Overlook Shelter in Barkcamp State Park!
It will be a Potluck Dinner so please bring a covered dish to share. OVRWC members and their families are invited. Paper products and soft drinks will be provided.
Hope to see you there!
Come to the Club Meeting on Tuesday, August 11th, 7:00pm at Edgewood Lutheran Church in Wheeling to hear Kitty Consolo. Kitty is a former Olympic qualifier who is an instructor at Ohio University's Zanesville campus. She is a motivational speaker who has written articles for Runners World. Kitty has had several health issues, injuries, and setbacks yet she continues to forge ahead participating in the sport that she loves. Her talk is titled "Running (and walking) with Resilience—Staying Strong for Life". Her talk will be beneficial to runners, walkers, and trail runners. Members are encouraged to come to the meeting and hear this talk. We are very lucky to have Kitty do this for us. Hope to see you there!

URGENT GRAND PRIX NOTICE FOR 2015
The Glow for Goal, Debbie Green, and Barkcamp races will not be part of the 2015 Grand Prix Series. With these changes, we will revert back to the 10 point system. Once an entrant accumulates 10 points within their category, they are automatically eligible to attend and receive awards at the annual "Taking Strides Towards Better Health" Grand Prix banquet.
CLUB RACE SHIRTS
Jana placed the initial order for the new race shirts and is planning to order more. The shirts are gender specific tech shirts with a weave type of material. We're told that they run a little small. They are sapphire blue with a silver/gray logo on the front and with the words "Your pace or mine?" on the back. They come in two styles: tank and short sleeve. Price is $18.50 with a $2 extra charge for XXL. To order, please contact Jana by email or phone at 304-639-5738. Please specify gender, size, and style.
