WRRC Announcement

Welcome to the new Club website!

The Wilmington Road Runners have updated the club website. The new site helps to better support and automate the member management aspects of the club and allows the Membership Chair more time to promote the activities of the club instead of paperwork.

The new site is full of great new features and details on the events and programs of the club. We hope the change will make your participation even easier than before.

Please be patient while all the kinks in the new site are worked out. Please report any issues or errors and more importantly your ideas for the site. This is your club and all contributions are encouraged.

WRRC Relay FOr LIfe Update

Run Cancer into the Ground

We had an outstanding effort with the American Cancer society Relay for Life at Ashley High School on April 28-29.

Here are the numbers:

  • Over 65 members participated
  • We had 5 survivors do the survivor lap
  • We logged over 350 miles on the track
  • Our Marathon Plus Man, Eric Jacobi covered 160 laps or 40 miles!
  • Twelve members ran 10 miles or more
  • We had 11 members raise over $300 each
  • Kathy Jacobi raised over $2,620, which was second overall for the Relay for Life, and Debi Oliver was 10th overall!
  • We are the number 1 team out of 8- teams participating for funds raised.
  • We reached the Jade Level for another year, and,
  • We raised well over $13,000 just missing the club PR set last year at the event (there is still time to kick in your donation!)
A real big WRRC shout out of thanks to:
  • David Southerland on the T-Shirts
  • Ali Shofe bringing the pizza party
  • Wendy Southerland and Jon Kapell on the River to the Sea run
  • Michelle Fogle, Ali Shofe, and Wendy Southerland on the Pancake Run
  • Bruce Bullard and Steve Bunch on Grill for morning pancakes and sausages
  • Stephen Armstrong and Jay Hopper on set up and take down
  • And a very special acknowledgement to David Flory for once again providing the leadership and energy to make this all happen!
While the membership did a great job, these folks helped organize and pull together our team this year. Please give them a pat on the back, next time you run with them. 

WRRC 2016 GRAND PRIX UPDATE

2017 Grand Prix is Underway!

The 2017 Grand Prix series will be bigger and better than ever. Awards presented for the top two scorers in each age group. To be eligible for an age group award you must run at least four of the Grand Prix races. 

We have two special events – Relay for Life and The Battle at the Border, that just gives you points for participation, but does not count as a race.
