Next Up: Main Line 5k
The Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix Challenge is back from summer break! PRTC currently sits in second placebehind the formidable Greater Philadelphia Track Club. We're at the halfway point in the series and within striking distance of first!
A big showing at the Main Line Run this coming Sunday would help us greatly in our quest to win the challenge. The 5k plays to our strengths which makes this a nice opportunity to close the gap. Please consider joining us at this race. Prize money will be awarded to the top 3 male/female finishers. Reply to this email if you need a ride!

New Haven, CT: Colin Leak celebrated Labor Day with the Faxon Law New Haven Road Race. He opted for the 20k which served as this year's USATF 20k Championships as it has in the past. This helped the race once again attract a competitive field. Colin held a pace of 5:11/mile on a very hot day to take 17th overall. Great work!
Colin Leak: 16:35 (17th)
