February 2018: Platte River Bar and Grill – Trophy Series 7M and 5k

Come join us for one of our most fun race days!  Our February 7M and 5k races happen on February 11 at the Platte River Bar and Grill on S Santa Fe.  This is a club favorite because we can stay warm inside before the race, run on a nice course, then come back to great food and drink at PRBG.  And this year there’s more – a great raffle to follow the race.  RDs Jeff Hesse and Michael Blanchette are planning quite the day!

Our course goes north on the South Platte bike path, then turns around and comes back on the opposite side of the river.  It’s a nice fast course that’s easy to follow and well-marked.

After the race we’ll have awards and some club-sponsored food and drink inside the bar.  That’s where the raffle will happen as well, so stick around after you run to get a chance to win something.  You can also get a beer and your lunch –great way to finish up the morning and thank our hosts at the Platte River.

Race Day Details

Date:   Sunday February 11.
Time:   9am start.  Show up at least 45 minutes early to get your tag and warm up.  Don’t make the volunteers wait for you – they want to run, too!
Course:  race runs on the South Platte concrete bike paths.
Location:  Platte River Bar and Grill in Littleton on Santa Fe south of Bowles.
You’ll find registration and bathrooms inside, race start west of the parking lot
in back of the bar.

2017 RMRR Year End Results!

2017 was a great running year for RMRR…and now our final results are in!

We have 4 running and racewalking categories, and we also have the Ric Robinette Resolute Runner award for the member who has scored the most points over the past 4 years.   Over the years many fine area runners’ names have topped these lists…and now some of yours are there, too!

We had some scoring system difficulties this year, so the results will look a little different than in years’ past.  All tables are in winning order, and you can review the appropriate “top 10” column on the right for the final scores.  That represents the sum of the best 10 races for that runner for the year.  We discard the lowest 2 races, so your best 10 are what you’ll see.  This is true for both the Trophy Series (ability-adjusted) and Scratch results.

This year’s race for the Trophy Series running crown was REALLY close!  Deb Cunningham wins this time by less than 3 points over Rob Sanchez.  Rick Edrich came in third 5 points back.

In the Racewalk category we have a new champion!  Jan Hill wins the category, followed by Michael Blanchard and Janet Fairs.

The Scratch category awards those consistently running the fastest in our races.  For the women, Deb Cunningham wins the Fastest Female title, with Sabine Preisinger and Cori Diekmeier coming in second and third.  For the men, Eric Greene once more finishes first, followed by David Rothenburger and Scott Dailey.

Finally, for the Resolute Runner award…we shift the order of last year’s top three.  David Rothenburger outpoints Scott Newman for first, and Eric Greene came in third.  These are the most consistent runners in RMRR for the last 4 years, and you can bet they have done a lot of running to get there!

Thanks to all of you for your running and support of RMRR.  We can’t continue without your support and your help bringing new people to the club.  Please tell all your friends and let’s boost our numbers and participation next year.  We want more runners!
