Membership – people still keep signing up! 229 members in May; 300+/-  is our past yearly total.

      • Board members send Jim email about their decision by next board meeting.
  • Krissy – Couch to 5k is going GREAT! Tuesdays and Saturdays. 
  • Joffrey – MWRR alternative run. Challenge options, not a particular route. Find 2,300m of vertical in the least or most amount of mileage. Allow people to compete in a variety of ways! Allows for creativity of modes, distance, over period of time, eg. – how many MWRR can you accomplish in a week. Amanda – suggest 10 alternatives on trail and roads that would allow members unused to tracking vertical to plan. Categories: include treadmills, over the week – include running downtime), in one day. Ideas: make one award for same day/same vert (for competitive runners), as well as use the Lone Runner Challenge (to encourage social runners). Joffrey will draw up a promo. 
  • Next Meeting: Monday, June 15th,  6pm. Zoom meeting, or open to reconsideration.
