The CRRC will be holding the 33rd Annual Winter Run on February 16, 2014, at the Granville Intermediate School.  Join us for the distance that is right for you.  The Winter Run offers a perfect training race for a spring marathon or a way to shake off the winter blues.  Pick from a 15, 7.5, or 3 mile race.  The 15 mile race is two loops of the 7.5 mile course, and the 3 mile race is an out and back course.  All races start and finish at the Granville Intermediate School.

This year all race proceeds will go to Steps For Sarcoma, whose mission is to bring community awareness to this highly aggressive, rare cancer and to raise pilot funds for research to promote improved patient outcomes and quality of life.

Community Running -- Clintonville

Community Running is free, a great way to meet new runners and to improve your fitness level. Since the beginning of 2013, we have been meeting every Wednesday, at 6:30PM, at the Whetstone Recreation Center.  We meet in the back parking lot, near the Rec Center, and head out on the running path or in the neighborhood.

Community Running is a group running experience starting in the Clintonville area. Community Running is a group running program for anyone interested in running, from the novice to experience runner.   Community Running is the concept of group runs as a community and running in the community.  So let’s explore the community of Clintonville with other runners as you train for a personal best in 2013.
