Mary O’Donnell 5K

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

The MRC Racing Series continued on Sunday, August 13th with the Mary O’Donnell 5K.

Many MRC runners were running the Sunday Long Run and could not make the race. When the race began at 9 AM, it was already getting hot in Melrose.

Melrose Racing SeriesEven with the heat and other races and long runs, The MRC fielded 10 runners for the race.

The Tysall family had a great showing with four family members participating. Charlotte Tysall was the first MRC runner to cross the finish line at 21:26 for a first place age group finish!

Nicola Tysall finished 48th at 23:57, Lisa Tysall finished in 25:59 for a 3rd place age-group finish. Simon Tysall placed second in his age group at 29:46.

Our next race is The Lone Gull 10K on September 24th in Gloucester.  This is a large 10K with about 1,000 runners. Age group awards are 5 deep! This has been a popular race with MRC runners for many years. Make sure to car pool!

Also in September we have the Hallmark Health Stride for Healthy Communities 5K in Wakefield. The Melrose Running Club is a partner sponsor for this race. So not only do we hope that you register for this race, but that you volunteer some time to help out.

It is a Saturday race so all of the Sunday Long Run runners can also participate.  All children 12 and under will receive a finisher’s medal!

Just like our club races, there are many opportunities to volunteer that only require an hour or two of your time. With some assignments you can even volunteer and run.

Proceeds from this race go right back into our communities to teach high school students CPR, for example.

Run well my Friends!


Twin Lights Half Marathon 2017

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Twin Lights Half, Melrose Running ClubThe Twin Lights Half Marathon is the 5th race in the Melrose Running Club Racing Series.

All club members have access to a terrific discount code. Usually when you register for a race this close to the date you pay the maximum price. With our discount code you get an unbeatable price for a half marathon.

As of April 2nd only four club members have used the code. I’m assuming that a few of you registered before the code was available? I know I did.

Everyone else has until April 15th to register for a great race at a great price.

The race is on May 6th at 8AM. It is an early start, but you will probably be home by noon. Not bad.

To register click HERE.

To get your discount code go to the MRC web site and check the MRC forum.

The registration site does not give you the option to join a team or register under the MRC. But if you wear your purple singlet, everyone will know you are from Melrose.
