The majority of the club's race results and pictures are on our Facebook page. It is much easier to post to FB, along with numerous pictures. Plus, everyone who is a member can post their own pictures and results. For our local events, I will continue to post them here. (Please note that sometimes the race results do not post correctly such as the 2011 Swamp Run. I apologize that they are a " jumbled up mess"
but after numerous attempts at trying to type them on individual lines, I finally gave up.)

If you are on FB but not on the club's FB page, go to Okefenokee Track Club and click "Like".
(I was not able to change the page to Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club
without starting over, but I was able to use our new logo.)

2008 Riverfront Run 5K

New track club member Kimberley Spivey has only been running since April after the Swamp Run. She ran the 1 mile fun run with her daughter for Blackshear Elementary & was hooked. She's already running 5K's & training for her first half marathon. Her first 5K was the Gray Ribbon Run. On October 4th, she ran a 27:38 in Albany's Riverfront Run 5K. She also raced in the Jax Children's Way 5K on September 7th, finishing with a time of 26:09.

It's great to see the school competition in our Swamp Run 1 mile fun run is not only breeding very young runners, but is also changing the lives of their parents!
