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.)

114th Boston Marathon - April 19, 2010

This year's Boston Marathon closed early leaving a couple of our members unable to participate. However, Cheryl Monroe and Robin Smith did make it! They enjoyed the beautiful weather and excitement that all runners feel about running this presitigious event. Cheryl completed her 5th Boston by finishing with a time of 3:58, while Robin completed her 3rd, finishing with a time of 4:26. (No personal photos available.)

It was interesting to read the numbers on the official web site: Runners Entered - 26,735; Runners Started - 23,126; and Runners Finished - 22,629. So 97.9% actually finished this year's marathon. For more many more interesting statistics, you can go to www.baa.org/2010/cf/public/statistics.htm.
