Russell Run Club's Weekly Run-Down June 9, 2024

Updated: Jun 19

A little bit of everything to report this week.

In This Issue

Quite a crowd again on Tuesday night!

Club News

Russell Community Market

This weekend, our members proudly donned their Run Club T-shirts and decorated a booth with all our signs, flags, and banners to promote the Russell Run Club at the Russell Community Market. It was a fantastic opportunity to introduce our club to new faces and reconnect with some familiar friends.

Although the rain dampened attendance this month, we still had a great time engaging with the community. We're looking forward to returning this summer and continuing to share our passion for running and walking with even more people.

Support our Club Photographer

Whenever you see quality photographs of our club events, you have Norm Fortin to thank.

Norm has 3 pictures entered into the township competition for new photos for the panels at the end of the bowling lanes. Let us show our appreciation for Norm's talents and place your vote for Norm's pictures (he has 3: B, F & H) on the Russell Township website.

While you can vote for whichever pictures you like best, we're biased toward the photo of our own Crystal MacKinnon (Norm's wife) running in photo B.

The deadline to vote is Sunday, June 16, 2024. So don't wait!

24-Hour Yeti Challenge

Saturday, June 22, 2024

Duration: 24 hours

Location: Casselman, ON (exact location to be provided if interested)

Structure: Eight rounds (3 hours each) within the 24-hour period. Every three hours, a new round begins. Participants must cover the distance they’ve set as their goal within each three-hour window. This distance includes any rest time. Each participant set their own goal! But he hopes that everyone is willing to set a goal that is challenging for them. ·

Challenge Completion: To complete the full 24-hour challenge, participants should aim to participate in all 8 rounds. However, this is meant to be a fun and a family-friendly challenge! Each participant can participate in as many or as few rounds as they wish during the 24h period.

8 rounds of 3 hours each, $3/round with all proceeds donated to CHEO.

For all the details, reach out to club member Paul Lalonde via Facebook private message or email and we'll put you in touch with Paul.

The Beer Mile

June 29, 2024 at the Clarence Rockland Summer Spirits festival 

Drink a beer, run/walk/jog (or crawl) around a 1/4 mile track and then repeat, 3 more times!

There is a non-alcoholic option, for those who would rather not drink beer. Or perhaps you would prefer to share those laps and beers with others by entering the team relay.
