MRC Racing Series Continues

We had a hiccup in May when the Twin Lights Half Marathon was cancelled due to weather. The race was insured so everyone should have received their registration fee back. We missed out on a great race, but you can use that money for the next race.

Melrose Firefighter’s 5K

mrc racing series, melrose running clubThe Melrose Firefighter’s 5K takes place on June 18th at 9:30AM. Kid’s race is at 9AM. Conveniently located at the Melrose Common, we hope to have a large club turn put.

If you are new to the club and would like to run a 5K, this is your chance! There will be plenty of purple shirts around to provide support and help you have a great first 5K race.

The Melrose Firefighters have partnered with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation this year.

The temperature in June is usually comfortable for running, so don’t miss your chance to support two good causes, run a great race and enjoy some great weather.

Registration is still $25 and race shirts are guaranteed for the first 300 runners to register.

Run well my Friends!
