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.)

Ron Crosby-62 Miles at Age 62

Facebook Ron Crosby: "62 miles seemed an appropriate amount of miles to run since I turned 62 yesterday. My birth certificate does not show the time of birth, so started at 12 Midnight of my birthday. The miles began from the place where it all got started, the old Ware County Hospital, on State Street. From there, I ventured to my first h...ouse on Byck Avenue, and to my first church, Crawford Street Baptist. The next spot was the second house, on Wadley Road. Then came the two schools, Emerson Park Elementary (class of’62 -go Beavers), and Ware County High School (class of ’66 -go Gators). The current church, Jamestown Baptist, preceded our home, on Lamar Avenue. Other routes were all around the county. Why would anyone want to do this?
(1)Thirty-something running friends in the 1980’s were doing this, so thought it might be a good goal. As sometimes happens, a quarter of a century goes by. With another mile tacked on each year, no need to put it off.
(2) 62 miles equals 100 kilometers, or a metric century, which is just a good round number.
(3) It has been a number of years since I ran an ultra-marathon (anything over 26.2 miles), and just wanted to see if I still have it.
A special thanks to Denise. She took the Midnight photo, provided encouragement, and made sure I had insoles, Gatorade, and sunscreen. Plus, she kept it a secret, in case I bombed.
We decided to put the birthday outing off until today. In recognition of reaching social security recipient status, age-appropriate attire will be in order. My best wingtips, high black socks, Bermuda shorts, and flowery shirt, will be a hit, with the “early-bird special” group. On the way, in the 55 MPH zone, I will be in the left lane doing 20. Or maybe just run to the restaurant."
