Devens 5K Wrap-up

All of the weekly results have now been posted in the results area.

The Devens Series was a success- as it gave the Club greater exposure to other Runners- and we welcomed some new members because of it.

A BIG hand to Kevin and Amy for following through and having the vision to get this started, and another BIG hand to the volunteers who took the race duties in the later weeks.

Another BIG round of thanks for the membership who actually got to run the series. See you NEXT Spring!!!

Marathon Monday

Congratulations to all NMC Runners for their finish of the Boston Marathon! Pictures were taken by Paul McDermott in the Newton Hills. If anyone has additional photos they would like to share- I can host them- just send mail to and we'll work on it.
We had our cheerleaders out in force- and also our Club Security staff was caught in line for the freebies on Boylston St!!!

    Boston Marathon New Qualifying and Registration 2012 and Out

    I am sure that by now many of you have heard or read the latest release from the BAA. Due to their overwhelming sellout of the 2011 Marathon- in which many qualified runners were not able to register- the BAA has new guidelines for both qualifying and registration beginning with the 2012 Race.

    Please read and understand how this may or may not affect you. I'll list two sources- one from andf the other direct from the BAA.

    President's Award Winner

    Also handed out at our Annual Meeting was the 2011 winner of the President's Award.

    Recognized for all her work over the years as a member of the Lake Winni Relay committee, and as Membership Director was Darlene Hoover. She has had some of the more glamerous jobs such as calling and renting school buses, and porta-potties, and even having to attend Town Meetings for permits to put on the Winnipesaukee Relay.

    Congratulations Darlene!
