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.)

Camp Reveille 2010

Hot and humid temperatures did not slow the 2010 Reveille Runners in their 1-Mile Fun Run hosted by the Okefenokee Track and Cycling Club. The July 15th event had the over 100 campers and counselors logging in their personal best times at Laura S. Walker State Park. Each participant received a medal with the overall top three receiving trophies. The event was preceded by running activities on Monday and Tuesday at LSWSP for the Reveille Runners. Special thanks to track club members Ron and Denise Crosby, Allen Smith, Ben Bennett, Elizabeth Monroe, Amanda and Shayna Dryden for their assistance in the 1 mile fun run.

Peachtree 10K Road Race-Atlanta

On Sunday, July 4th, Daniel and Tiffany Warren raced in the 41st running of the world's largest 10K - the Peachtree 10K Road Race in Atlanta, GA. Per Tiffany, "this was such a fun and one of a kind race! What a tremendous and patriotic way to spend the 4th! We enjoyed every minute of it! From the many bands to the spectators throughout the entire 6.2 course, it all helped make you forget just how hot it really was!"

Out of nearly 51,000 runners, they finished as follows:

Tiffany - 54:05 (6776 place)
Daniel - 1:04:00 (17,270 place)

26th annual Sunshine Festival 5K-St. Simons Island

Once again, a large group of Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club members and other locals raced in the Sunshine Festival 5K on July 3rd. This is a favorite for many of us! A flat course and exceptionally cooler weather brought out over 400 participants to the 5K starting line. Hosted by the Golden Isles Track Club, a traditionally hot and muggy day was replaced by cool sea breezes and moderate temperatures. Overall winners were Peyton Hoyle from Thomaston, with a time of 15:49. From Savannah, Michelle LaFleur captured the women's title with a time of 17:48.
