PRTC Weekly: 07/08/2019 (Team Social, Firecrackers, and More)

Team Social - Wednesday

Leading with a reminder this week: We are hosting a team social at Philadelphia Runner's Center City location Wednesday (July 10th) at 7:30 PM!

It's looking like we'll have strong attendance and we're hoping to see nearly everyone out. Stop by 16th and Sansom for a chance to enjoy pizza and beer as well as the opportunity to reconnect with or meet teammates!

We'll have singlets available for new members and take some time to get caught up with t-shirt handouts (from Broad Street) and other distributions. Reply to the Slack thread in our social channel or this email to reserve a singlet or racing shorts. Let us know you can make it by accepting this Facebook invite.

Travel Grant Deadline

Please send in any last-minute travel grant applications by the end of this week (July 14th). For questions on the program contact Chris Mateer or Lauren Kelly. We are planning to notify initial award recipients shortly.

Race Results

Washington Crossing, PA
: Steve Hallman won the Revolutionary Run 10k in the first of many 4th of July race results. He selected the 10k (instead of the 5k option) and took first by more than two and half minutes in 33:13. Very good on a hot day. Nice job!

Steve Hallman: 33:13 (1st)

Downingtown, PA: The Downingtown Good Neighbor Day 5k had two participants from PRTC this year. Kayla Lampe won the women's race in 18:02. She ran away from her competition arriving first to the finish by nearly 45 seconds. Meanwhile, Jesús Muniz ran his first 5k in 3 years. He came through in 18:31 which fell below his goal, but was still fast enough to win his age group. Great work!

North Myrtle Beach, SC: PRTC was spotted on the Southeastern seaboard this week where Meredith Unger took on the Red White and Blue 5k in South Carolina. Meredith braved humid conditions that reached the low 90's at the start line. She still managed to have a good race and even notched negative splits thanks to a finishing kick. Her time of 19:58 (sub 20!) earned 1st masters and 3rd overall. Nice work!
