Finish Line Crew Retires

Our finish line crew of Al Stott, Bob Burash, and Whitey Gross retired at the 40th Anniversary Run held December 9th, 2018.  This team brought 49 years of combined experience to timing our races.  Thanks to Al, Bob, and Whitey for keeping order as runners came full speed to the finish chute while getting our bib tear-offs, and for all the other support they have provided through the years.

The Annapolis Striders are now looking for volunteers to step up and learn the timing process. This job is interesting and important, which is why Al, Bob, and Whitey kept at it for so long. Interesting, because it allows you to see the entire field of runners cross the finish line in every condition, from completely exhausted to totally unfazed, and everything in between. But also extremely important! If we don’t have a finish line and timing crew, we don’t have a race! So please give it a try. Interested members please contact Dan Symancyk (dan@annapolisstriders.org). The first race for the new crew would be the Cherry Pit 10-Miler in May.
