Train for the health of it ... Race for the fun of it!

Message From the President - July 2017

Happy Independence Day!  Welcome to summer!

I want to take a paragraph to update you on the remaining signature OMRR events this year and Frisco.

#Sweatfest will be rocking Strafford from the Landmark Church, July 8th.  I also learned the monetary gift to the foundation purchased several pairs of glasses for these students.   We done good! Let’s do it again! 

Ok – so a couple of paragraphs! 

The City has approved the course for Run for the Ranch.  Lots of buzz toward the 4 person relay.  Look for new award categories and perhaps other interesting features. Registration for those with deferred entries into the 2018 Frisco Railroad Run has been delayed for a couple of weeks.  Registration should be available by July 15th and will be online only for deferral entries.  2018 will be the 10th anniversary and you may expect an awesome day on the trail. 

OMRR Bass Pro Fitness Festival Training Starts July 22nd at the Bass Pro Parking area.  Medals and shirts for other events will be available for your choice after your training run.  Those running Dogwood will be relieved to learn the trails are getting back in shape. Several additional entries are to be made available within the next few weeks for the 25k and 15k.  AND – We are still in need of additional Pacers for the Marathon fitness weekend.  No experience needed.  Free entry and swanky Pacers shirts for those who volunteer.

Dan will be holding the Poker Run July 6th at Burrell Lake. 

Many of us take vacations during the summer months and as runners we use these vacations to run races (because it just happened to be there- happy coincidence –etc.) that are out of the area.  The most unusual, shirt will win a gift card from one of our sponsors this month.

All for now!  See you out there!
