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.)

"So, Where's The Party"

We have a new celebrity author in the track club! Janna Summerall-Smith submitted an essay in a contest, winning 1st place! Fifteen essays were published in a new book, the meaning of TRI{ATHLON}. All essays are written by everyday triathletes. Janna's essay is first in the book. It is also published at http://usatriathlon.org/content/index/6611, where you can read her essay in its entirety. Congratulations, Janna!

Camp Reveille-June 18, 2009 (Week 1)

The Okefenokee Track Club is one of the many sponsors of this annual event for underprivileged kids in the area. Club members host a 1 mile fun run at Laura S. Walker State Park, where we provide coaching, encouragement, and medals to finishers. Though the heat was brutal, all the kids had fun and were proud of their medals!

Run for the Pies-Jacksonville, FL

Held in the evening on June 13, 2009, this downtown venue is flat, fast, and hot. Some of the fastest runners in the area compete for the coveted pies. Local participants were happy with their results and enjoyed the post-race festivities. Don Varnadore captured local honors with a 24:43. Debbie Yawn finished in 30:42.

Blueberry Festival 5K Run-Alma

This flat and fast course is always on the calendar for Okefenokee Track Club members and other area runners. As usual the OTC had the largest numbers of participants and award winners. The club’s Daniel Broadhead was the overall winner, at 17 minutes and 45 seconds. Right behind him was club mate, Matthew Garmon, with a 17:50. In the Grandmasters category, Wayne Broadhead and Cheryl Monroe took the honors.

(Though there was a large group from the track club, we did not have everyone's results. It's your responsibility to send them to us if you want them posted. The web site given for the results only showed results for May. However, we just don't have time to hunt down everyone's times, so you need to send them to us.)

Great photo!
