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!


MRC Racing Series Updates

April 23rd, 2017

Dear Runners,

The Twin Lights Half is coming up next weekend. I hope everyone was able to take advantage of the $25 discount on the registration fee. $50 for a half marathon is a bargain. The Run to Remember registration is now $120!

The Melrose Firefighter’s 5K registration is open. I did not ask for a discount for this race.

The Jennifer Tinney 4th of July Races and the Mary O’Donnell 5K are still questionable. I have not been able to reach the Boxford Athletic Association about the Tinney races. On April 4th, the Race Director for the Mary O’Donnell 5K told me they would be posting a date soon, but nothing so far.

I’ll give these a few more weeks.

Registration for the Lone Gull 10K has not opened yet, but I’m 99% sure this race is still on.

Registration is open for the Hallmark Health 5K and Melrose Y Spooky Sprint 5K.

The Run For All Ages and Bill Rodgers Jingle Bell Run dates have been set, but I do not expect registration to open for a few more months.

I hope everyone has been enjoying the series so far. If you want to run one of these races but need a ride please ask on our FaceBook page. Someone always has room in their car and I have carpooled to each race so far.

Run well my Friends,
