Join us for a panel discussion on Tuesday April 7th at 6:00pm at CentreTown Fitness. The topic will be “Training and Racing the Half Marathon/Marathon Distance”. The panel will consist of Mike Hudimac (ironman triathlon notoriety), Dr. Lance Tarr (exercise physiologist), and Steve Habursky (Elby's/Ogden ironman and owner of a 2:30 marathon PR). The panel will take questions from runners who want to improve upon their times or for those who just want to finish. This is a club event and you must show your OVRWC membership card at the door.

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.
BARNESVILLE GRAND PRIX
Check out the list of people who have qualified for the 2014 Barnesville Grand Prix! To qualify, you must have participated in (not just signed up for) at least 3 out of the 4 Barnesville Grand Prix races. Your finishing time, age group place, gender, or award status are all irrelevant. Simply participating in 3 races gets you three chances for Barnesville Gold Dollars (the same as cash at most Barnesville businesses) and a free race entry. Participating in all 4 gets you an additional 2 chances PLUS an exclusive trophy and/or racing gear item. Please contact Carl Kondrach with any corrections ASAP. Entries will be drawn soon and the winning names will be posted here!
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.
