CCRC is now on Facebook
I have created a CCRC Group on Facebook (thanks to Queena Beebe). You do not need a Facebook account to get to our page. I have made it public. But if you want to post something, you will need a Facebook account and I recommend you create an account for yourself. One of the nice things about having an account, is that you will be notified every time someone posts something. I can see a lot of advantages to using Facebook versus using our CCRC Website. First of all, anyone can post something on Facebook because people are constantly asking me to post things on our website. It is very tedious and it takes up my time. In the future, I will ask people to go straight to Facebook if they want something posted. Another advantage is that it has a calendar. We can put all our running events on the calendar and you can be notified of upcoming events. Another thing I like about Facebook, is that it is so simple to post pictures compared to posting pictures on the website. So you can expect to see a lot more pictures. So far it has been a hit. In the first 3 weeks since I launched, we already have 151 members.
Partnership with Fit Right NW
Fit Right NW has always been very generous with the Clark County Running Club. At this year’s half marathon, they donated 4 pairs of shoes to the top Finishers (Male & Female, Open & Masters). Over the years, they have been very generous donating items for our raffles after our run. Fit Right NW will be the exclusive retail sponsor of CCRC. Fit Right NW has also offered to give all members a 10% discount on shoes & apparel. Since we do not have membership cards, they will be using our on-line membership database to see if your dues are paid to date. So make sure you have paid your membership dues this year. And please support Fit Right NW. It is so nice to have a running shoe store on this side of the river where you can get expert advice. Link to Fit Right Northwest
95% Of You are Doing it Correctly
Three years ago we implemented the pre-assignment of numbers to all participants of our races. We asked everyone to write that number on the tag that we collect at the finish. It’s a very tedious and time consuming job compiling the results. When you use your pre-assigned number, I do not have to struggle with reading your handwriting. It greatly reduces the time to compile results. The good news is that 95% of participants are putting numbers on their tag. Just a few still don’t. I hope you read this article and start. Lastly, if you have any corrections to your name or age, just circle it on the tag. I should catch it. Thanks to all who use their number. To check your pre-assigned number, click this link.
