Three factors weigh into what I pick for races …

1.  Popularity in the club. If a road race from 2017 drew 15 or more RIRR runners, there’s a very, very good chance it will be back on the 2018 schedule.

2.  I’ll give strong preferences to races whose race directors will either donate race entries to our banquet in March or give us discounts to their races. It’s one of the ways to say thanks to these folks for their generosity year after year.

3.  The way to my heart is to my stomach. Any race that gives out free beer and/or has a great spread of food certainly grabs my attention. In other words, if I can leave my wallet in my car and have a couple of beers before I head home, then that’s good enough for me.

  1. The 8th Run The Reservoir is scheduled for 3/28 9 AM from the N Scituate Community House (no change)- but the course is now an Out and Back through the Reservoir trail – should be faster and less traffic to contend with. Online reg with 3C race Productions (RIRR $5 discount for prereg only)
