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.)

December 6th - Three 5K's in One Day!

Dubbed the Tour De Xmas Races by local runners, four Okefenokee Track Club members went on the road to Valdosta, Tifton, and Douglas to compete in three 5K’s within 10 hours. Each of the South Georgia Cities had their annual Christmas parade and festivities, with hundreds of racers drawn to the downtown venues. The four traveling harriers are Thomas Deane, Payton Joyner, Russell Keaton, and Ron Crosby. Many other OTC members and locals participated in at least one of the three events. The largest group was at the 9th Annual Douglas Parade Run, which has become a tradition for the Waycross group.

Two local teenagers and a boomer copped top awards, with Thomas Deane taking the Overall Male trophy in Valdosta, and Matthew Garmon in Douglas, along with Ron Crosby taking the Male Master (40+) victory in Douglas.
