Summer Fun Runs
CRR Election Results
On Friday, June 7th, the annual General Meeting of the Colonial Road Runners membership was held and the following officers were elected.
The 2013 Colonial Road Runners Summer Fun Run Series is under way! This is a weekly series of timed runs that takes place through the end of August. We start off each week on Monday nights in Raynham, with a 3.25 mile run. On Tuesdays, the venue shifts to Abington for a 3.27 mile run. And on Wednesdays, we wrap up the week with a 3.75 mile through D.W. Field Park in Brockton. Each nights run begins at 7:00pm, and the weekly cost is $2.00. Upon your initial sign up, you will receive a bib number that should be used throughout the summer, at any of the 3 locations. These runs are open to everyone. You do not need to be a Colonial member to participate. Results from each night are posted on coolrunning.com. Complete information, including course maps, descriptions, contact info. etc, can be found on our Summer Fun Run page.

Grand Prix Update
Thanks to Mother Nature, the 2013 Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix Series got off to a rocky start. The Old-Fashioned Ten Miler, the first race on this year's schedule, was cancelled due to a snowstorm. The next race, the Half of Quincy, was postponed from until May 5th. This meant that the first race that actually took place as scheduled was the Run for Your Mother race on April 21st, a full 3-1/2 months after the first of the year. This also meant that the first 3 races of the series took place in a 5 week period. Currently, there are now 3 races that have been held (Run for Your Mother, Half of Quincy and the Abington PD Community Partners 5k). Results and overall standings have been compiled and posted on the Grand Prix page.
Next up on the Grand Prix schedule is the 13th Annual Tispaquin Run on Saturday, June 1st. This 10k race takes place at Camp Yomechas in Middleboro. You can register online at www.jbrace.com. Let's get out there and show them what Colonials are made of!
