-Trish went over the assignments for our upcomingHalloween Costume Run/Walk occurring onSunday Oct 29, 2017. Anyone interested in helping out that day should arrive by 7:45AM at the Ocean Breeze Complex. Please do your best to get the word out and promote this fundraiser for our Scholarship Fund. Can’t volunteer, please consider running…it would be great to have a large participation of Rockets, especially since this is a RICHMOND ROCKET RACE. Please get involved. This is your club and we need everyone to run or volunteer. (application attached...please download, print out, pass out, email to others...help us promote Our Race.)

-Runner of the month for September: Tony LaRocca. He completed two half marathons in Sept…The Indian Summer half in Brooklyn with a time of 2:15 and then the Newport Liberty Half in NJ at2:12:40. And if that wasn’t, enough Tony completed the Conference House Endurance Race on Staten Island. (Marathon distance) Way to go Tony!
