Runner of the Month for May: This month’s runner of the month is John Dixon. At the young age of 71 this man is unstoppable. A regular at most local races, the Thursday night speed runs, Jimmy's Old School runs, past SI Triple Crown winner, & many half marathons and marathons under his belt. He is a very active runner and a remarkable reminder that the sport of running has no age barrier. So keep hitting that pavement John, all of us at the Richmond Rockets are proud of you! Cosme’s Race - Sunday June 25, 2017 – The Richmond Rockets are scoring this race to help replenish our Scholarhship Fund. We are still in need of volunteers. Thank you to those that have already committed: Trish Mulligan, Darlene Vigliotti, Jimmy Hart, Andrea Dorman, Angela Conte, Bozena, Joanne Rosiello, Toby Massa, Richie Chin ?. We really need at least 12 volunteers to assure this race is scored correctly. Please consider helping out. You would need to arrive by 8AM at Coney Island, Race begins at 9:30, so we should be done by 11:00. Please reach out to me if you can volunteer! Pathway on Verrazano Narrow Bridge: Laura Barlament at Wagner College is a coalition partner in helping advocate a pathway for cyclist & pedestrians on the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. They are planning a Harbor Ring Summit for mid September- and was wondering if any members of the Richmond Rockets would be interested in joining. If so please reach out to Laura at We received a letter of thanks from MaryKate Drennan and a thank you email from the Garcia Family thanking us for awarded them a Richmond Rocket Scholarship. Next Meeting : July 10th @Manor House 7:15PM (Since the first Monday is on July 3rd, and this is a holiday weekend, we are going to check the availability for the Manor House for July 10th.) We had only 14 people in attendance at our June meeting and would love to see more people attend our meetings, and become more involved with our club. We are trying to look into a weekend trip to another State that offers a run for everyone. Perhaps a 5K , along with a ½ marathon and/or full marathon. If anyone has any suggestions, please send us info and we can look into accommodations and present it to our club. Today is Global Running Day! Join fellow runners and NYRR at Clove Lake Park from 6AM to 6PM or join them in a 3 mile fun run at Silver Lake Park at 7PM. Share here or on facebook when you plan on running today !
