The future of the Seattle Running ClubSeptember 23, 2010
Members of the Seattle Running Club continue to churn out impressive performances. For example, at the Super Jock ‘n Jill Half Marathon on September 6th, Uli Steidl placed 3rd (1:07:32) and Travis Boyd 7th (1:09:32). On the women’s side, Trisha Steidl was 8th (1:25:27) and 49-year-old Mary Hanna 14th (1:29:50). Glen Weissman took 4th in the concurrent “4+ mile run.” At the Sundodger cross-country meet on September 18th, our top performers were Marlene Farrell (7th in the women’s open 6K, 22:10) and Uli (10th in the men’s invitational 8K, 24:28).
Despite good race results and continuing support from Brooks, the future of the SRC is largely uncertain. Club founder and president Scott McCoubrey is reducing his involvement in the club, so new leaders and new plans are needed.
To get things rolling again, the SRC is holding a meeting on Monday, September 27th at 6 PM at The Balanced Athlete (in Renton, at the south end of Lake Washington). We’ll be discussing the fall cross-country season, electing new officers, and starting to chart a course into 2011 and beyond.
If you have a connection to the SRC, either as a current or past member or as someone who might be interested in joining in the future, please come to this meeting.
