Our members span a wide range of abilities and ages but share a common enthusiasm for running. Most prefer road and cross-country running, but some also participate in track events, while a few are drawn to ultramarathons on road and trail. We field both competitive and social teams in road relays every year and for many these are the highlight of the running calendar.
This group is open to existing members and potential members. Please post all your race results or use this as a discussion forum.

Happy 70th Birthday to Frank Shorter (Oct 31) who helped to start the running Boom after winning his 1972 Olympic gold marathon medal in Munich. (2nd in Montreal!) He is wearing a Shaughnessy 10k race shirt!
Happy birthday to Frank. Many of us ran with him. I ran last 5 Miles of New York on his recovery run from foot surgery as we chased Allison from NZ in 81 when Salazar broke the record and I feel over a runner that went into pothole coming of Queensborough Bridge and suffered my 4 th pelvic fracture. Just tagged with Frank. Jack (2 weeks ago)Cynthia Stout:
