PRTC Weekly: 05/21/2018 (Scott Coffee/Mayor's Cup Registration and More)

Scott Coffee and Mayor's Cup Registration

Registration for two popular summer club races is now open!

First up is the Scott Coffee Run (8k). All participants will receive a bag of Lacas coffee courtesy of the race. They may also enjoy the spectacle that is "Moorestown Day." Our NJ host community has their annual town celebration immediately following the race. Expect plenty of cotton candy, music, and other post-race festivities.

Scott Coffee is part of the all-important Grand Prix Series. We currently sit in 2nd place. This is a great opportunity to close the 14 (age-adjusted) point gap between us and Greater Philadelphia Track Club. The course is fair and does a nice job showcasing the town's neighborhoods. In prior years, many PRTC runners have been sent home with watches for placing within their age groups. Sign up here!

Mayor's Cup registration is also open. We will be chasing our third straight title. Mayor's Cup is a friendly competition among Philadelphia-based running clubs. The event is extremely popular within our local running community. 32 unique clubs are slated to vie for the cup this year. It's best to sign up early for this one as fees rise closer to the race date of August 11th. Our club password is BullsEyeRed (cap sensitive). Race transfers are allowed if you are unsure of which event to do.

Let us know you plan on racing one of the events here. We've done a nice job of covering the races, but would love to show up in full force!  Next up: Post-Mayor's Cup potluck and beer planning...
