MRC Racing Series Updates

Sunday, 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,


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.

Who’s in?
