RRCA Grant Award + SR XC Meet
Greetings Grove City Athletics Club!
A few announcements:
1) Elementary Cross Country Runners - Next Tuesday (Sept. 18) we have been invited to run at Slippery Rock against their small elementary program after the varsity race. It is very casual and no times will recorded. It is 1 mile. We will NOT have practice that day and will meet at Slippery Rock High School at 4:45pm (if facing the school – on the left side, away from SRU). The elementary race will start around 5 or 5:15pm. If you cannot attend – no biggie!
2) Great News!!! GCAC was awarded $900 for our elementary XC/track program as a RRCA “2018 Kids Run the Nation Grant Recipient”. This was the third time GCAC president Seth Jenny has applied for this grant, but the first time being awarded it.
5) Want to earn $1,000 to be in a running and diet research study at Grove City College? Dr. Philip Prins is still looking for more participants who meet the criteria. He wants to start data collection soon. See flyer here:
6) We are in the process of investigating getting the Grove City Athletics Club also affiliated with USA Track and Field (USATF) – the national governing body of the sport. After this occurs, all club members can compete in USATF sanctioned Championships. More details later!
Have a great day!
