Join Us for Wine and Dine Fun Run Wednesday – June 26, 2019

Our next “Wine and Dine” fun run, is this Wednesday June 26, 7:00 pm and will be led by PGRC president/coach “D” and PGRC member/coach Dave Roeder. Hope all can make it out for some running, and fellowship with wine and pizza after. The weather will be very warm that evening so be sure to start hydrating a day or two before. Don’t forget to wear some PGRC paraphernalia. 

Meet at Riverdale Towne Center Market no later than 7:00 pm for the easy run AND enjoy some wine afterwards at the market. BTW, their wine is on tap so bring your wine card if you bought one before or money for your wine.

The Towne Center Market isn’t a bar that serves food, but you can order food like pizza and sandwiches from next door – Dumm’s Pizza. It is literally a few steps from Towne Center, and they deliver food to the market so bring some money for pizza.

Oh and bring a friend or better yet a former PGRC’er! Let’s get our former members back, and what better way than over a glass of wine and some delicious pizza! Show them what they’re missing out on by not being in our club. Heck, tell lots of people!

Riverdale Towne Center Market is located at:

4705 Queensbury Rd
Riverdale Park, MD 20737

Have a great day all!

Things to Do at This Year’s Springburst

While at Springburst, here’s some cool stuff to look for and do:

  • We will have a running gear swap table, so bring your gently used or new running gear to add to the treasures others may find.
  • Do the flavors chocolate coffee cinnamon, banana puddn’, or oatmeal raisin whet your whistle? It does ours, so how about stopping by the Vonnie’s Cookies vendor table to purchase some pre- or post- race protein cookies —  infused with whey protein powder? Whey protein powder contains a number of antioxidant substances that help prevent diseases and promote overall health not to mention rebuilding skeletal muscles post run. One large cookie prices at $2.
  • Take in the scenery on the beautiful WB&A trail. The weather promises to be perfect for Saturday!

Calling All Springburst Volunteers!

This year’s Springburst race is going to be the best ever – WITH YOUR HELP! We have more than 100 runners registered. There will be prizes, food, a ‘running stuff swap table,’ a new location (WB&A Trail) and a new free 1K kids run. Plus: the weather is predicted to be sunny and warm.

To give every runner a great experience, we need a few more cheerful volunteers:

  • Parking Lot marshal (new this year)
  • Set up help
  • Clean up help
  • Refreshment table 
  • Bib handout (need 1 more)
  • Water stop (need 1 more)

Please register here to fill any of these positions (and be a PGRC s/hero!). There will be donuts and coffee for all volunteers! Many positions allow you to run the race, too.

Thanks a bunch, and please email PGRC Volunteer Coordinator Chris Nichols with any questions.

P.S. The race is this Saturday, April 13, 9 am start time. Park at the Glenn Dale Splash Pool. We are using the adjacent WB&A trail as the race course. If you have not registered, today is the last day!
