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.  Interested members please contact Dan Symancyk (dan@annapolisstriders.org). The first race for a new crew would be the Cherry Pit 10-Miler in May.

This program targets long distance runners who wish to improve their race performance for spring distance events such as the RRCA 10 Mile Club Challenge (February 24th), B&A Marathon and Half-Marathon, and other spring marathons. This is a “fat-ass” style training program: participants are expected to provide their own hydration and nutrition on group runs, and will include long, recovery, interval, and tempo runs.
