Winter 2012 Race Series

Winter Series 2012 Schedule is now posted

  • NMC 2012 Winter Race Series  (.pdf)
    Winter Series kicks off with our Bob Hersey Memorial Jan 8 out of the Fitchburg Knights of Columbus. We will also have our annual meeting and Pot-Luck Buffet.

    This Annual Meeting is also Election Day for NMC for election of Officers and Board of Directors for the next two years- lets get out the Vote!!! Meeting will begin following the Hersey Memorial 5 Mile Race.


  • Karma Tousignant- Ironman!!!

    NMC's Latest Ironman is Karma Tousignant! Karma did the Ford Ironman out in Arizona on November the 20th.

    Her times were:
    2.4 mi swim - 1:20:27
    112 mile bike - 6:27:03
    26.2 mile run - 3:53:52

    Total time 12:01:01

    Karma had a great race start to finish and said she loved every minute of it and felt great the whole way. She even said she can't wait to do her next Ironman, which may be as soon as this upcoming summer (stay tuned). Weather conditions were perfect all day starting out in the 50's and peaking out in the mid 70's during the day. She had signed up last year to do the race with her sister Renee Defeo and brother in-law Rodney Kinney who live only a few miles from the race. They had alot of fun preparing for the race together. Unfortunately Renee was not able to make the bike cutoff due to some technical issues but Rod was able to finish in 13:23:11. Renee already signed up for next year to give it another go and Rod is taking a well deserved break. Karma and I plan to be there next November to cheer Renee on.

    One other heartwarming thing was that on the morning she was leaving for the airport to fly to the race in AZ, she found that her many Lunenburg tri-friends and her family had completely covered the street we live on with good luck signs and they extended all the way into New Hampshire where she was going to the airport. She was really touched by that.

    Mill Cities Relay Recap!!!

    Another Mill Cities Relay has come and gone- and the North Medford Club posted another strong showing. We didn't get named on the cup- but we did come in 4th place overall.

    In Team competition NMC placed in 2 Divisions-
    Our Mixed 60's Team took First Place. Team consisted of Linda Usher, Vin Rivard, and Brian Byrne.
    Also- our Womens 50's team consisting of Darlene Hoover, Deb Parker, and Carol Allain took First Place as well.
    We also received a Top 5 Overall finish by one of our teams: Will Lary, Brandon Davis, Mike Grasela, Jon Miganowicz, and Matt Spano ran a 2:36 overall to come in 5th place.
    This was another banner year numbers wise- as we had 20 Teams running!

    A HUGE THANKS to Jeff Gould for doing what he does for us every year. He gets all these folks together in mostly a cohesive group, showing folks they can run and have a great time. This year he put out 20 teams for us- our highest ever. Also posted is a link to Jeff's re-cap of events- as only he can truly put words around!!!

  • 2012 Boston Marathon Waivers (Updated Info 12/12/11)

    Waivers for 2012 Boston Marathon: For this year NMC has been given 12 Waivers, and the cost is $300 UNTIL the END of January. On February the 1st- the cost goes up to $350, and anytime after that the BAA can possibly reject the Waiver Application- although they will try to accomodate each submission.

    If you are granted a Waiver- you cannot give it to anyone else. If you decide NOT to use it- it MUST be turned back in to NMC through Paul McDermott so that it can be re- awarded to someone else in the Club. These are tracked by number between the Club and the BAA. These are strictly for use by members of the North Medford Running Club.

    To be eligible for a waiver you must have volunteer points earned in year 2011. Those with more points get priority. The Coordinator for the volunteer points and waiver grant is Paul McDermott.

    To date- there are 15 Club Members who have expressed interest in a waiver. The order they will be handed out in will be determined by the number of Volunteer points received during 2011.

    If you are interested in a waiver- please send mail to Paul McDermott
