For an additional $15, you will receive a PFRPC Cool-Max Singlet, beautifully decorated front and back with the club logo and motto. Wear this shirt at any race and you will be the envy of all other runners, spectators and hangers-on! Plus hats, bags and other stuff artfully decorated with the club logo.

Sizes are limited so come to the race early!

Questions call Un-Race Director Joe at: 815.937.3773 or email [email protected]

Race Day Sign-Up Only

*As you might infer from the information above, we are tired of high race fees caused by having timing chips, giving out overpriced shirts, online computer registration and other foo-foo, falderal and all that jazz. Plus, we like a surprise just as much as the next person. Will three people show up? Thirty three? Three hundred??? Who knows?!

Join Us at the Un-Race! You’ll have an UN-Believably Good Time!

Turtle Ten Wrap Up

September 4, 2013 in News, Turtle Ten Miler by Liz Vander Velde

To All My Children

Thanks to the club for another successful Turtle Ten. 84 signups and 72 finishers and lots of people saying that they hope that we do it again next year.

Special Thanks go to:

John the trophy king. Five more years and he might get his basement back.

Glenn for making the clock happen.

Judge Ray for doing lots of everything, as always.

Chrissie for keeping registration straight.

Nadine and Art for doing the second water stop and not necking in front of the runners, the two lovebirds.

Deborah Lyn for the first water stop and lots of other things to keep us running.

Frogger for the course layout, marking and running well.

And especially Ted who set up, cooked, and put up with me all morning.

If you helped and I forgot you, punch me in the arm next time I see you and thanks for all you did.

Turtle Ten News

June 21, 2013 in News, Turtle Ten Miler by Liz Vander Velde

To all my children;
It is that time of the year again to start getting the word out about our non-race race the Turtle Ten.  Below is all of the information and it is in a one sheet format as an attachment in Word.
So pass it on, Tweet it, twit it, face book it.  Post it on your frig. Give it to friends, enemies, acquaintances, and total strangers.  Get it up at you health club and your local bar (more likely knowing this club).  In other words get it around.
New this year will be the option for club singlets.  Beautiful technical running shirts that will get you noticed wherever you wear them.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
mom
PS.  I will send out a request for volunteers in early August
