Thanks to everyone who made it to our annual meeting last night. It was productive and the pizza looked delicious.
First off I’d like to make you all aware of the dates for our upcoming races…
Saturday April 8th – Rock & Snow Bridge 2 Bridge Run (Registration is already open!)
Wednesday June 21st – Summer Solstice 14K Trail Run
Monday July 10th – New Paltz XC Summer Series #1: Pattersons Pellet (Minnewaska State Park)
Monday July 17th – New Paltz XC Summer Series #2: Blueberry Run (Minnewaska State Park)
Monday July 24th – New Paltz XC Summer Series #3: Undercliff / Overcliff (Mohonk Preserve)
Monday July 31st – New Paltz XC Summer Series #4: Lou’s Run (Mohonk Preserve)
Monday August 8th – Fun Run & Series Awards
Sunday November 12th – After The Leaves Have Fallen Half Marathon
Currently the plan is to limit both Summer Solstice and After The Leaves registration to 300 people this year but that is subject to change as we work with Minnewaska Sate Park.
Next up is changing in price for Summer Solstice and After The Leaves Half Marathon…last years price was $15. This year we are going to raise the price of these events to $20. 2017 Shawangunk Runner Members, in good standing, will receive the original price of $15 as well as early registration for these events. If you’d like to become a member of the Shawangunk Runners please fill out and mail this form -> Membership Form
Registration for Summer Solstice is planned to open up for members on April 1st with general registration opening 1 week later on April 8th. Registration for After The Leaves Half Marathon will open up to members on Sept 1st with general registration opening 1 week later on Sept 8th. I will create new posts as these events get closer.
We are also looking into member gear options as well as the possibility of having shirts available for purchase for this seasons races. These shirts will most likely not be available for purchase at the race but we will provide a link to allow you to purchase these on your own. We want to keep our races reasonably priced while allowing the widest range of options for people. We don’t want to make money off of any merchandise. We’ll be discussing more at our next meeting and hopefully we’ll have something available this year.
Finally we elected the board members for the 2017 year…
President: Steve Schallenkamp
Vice President: Beth Glace
Treasurer: Dan Freedman
Secretary: Greg Cecere
Technology Officer: Christopher Regan
Our next meeting will be on Monday 3/13 at 5:30pm at the SUNY New Paltz Science Hall | Corner of Plattekill & 32 in New Paltz, NY
