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.

April Fools 4 Mile Road Race

WCRC 36th Annual April Fools 4 Mile Road Race
Saturday, April 1, 2017

Race number four in the MRC Racing Series is a four mile race, no foolin!

We usually have a pretty good sized group of MRC runners turn out each year for this race. I’ve run The Four five times.

Often there are snow banks and one year it snowed during the race.

This is an out and back USATF certified course. It is also essentially flat.April Fools 4 miler, April fool's

I like running back after the turn around. When you are running down Vic Lin Drive you can see everyone in front of you and everyone behind you. It’s fun to give a wave of encouragement when you see ┬ásomeone you know.

Getting a wave or a shout out is fun also.

It can get a little crowded at the turn, but for most of the race you will have plenty of room.

This year Ipswich Brewery is the beverage sponsor. I’m pretty sure Smuttynose has been the sponsor for the past five years. While I’ll miss my Finest Kind IPA, I’m sure Ipswich will be serving up some tasty brews for us.

Like all races, we encourage car pooling and a wicked good time!

You’d be a fool to miss the April Fool’s 4 Miler!
