                      Weekly/Monthly Operations:

  • Weekly run-walks–Jack created a Reston Runners Club page on Strava (https://www.strava.com/clubs/1044563). We can add GPX, TCX, or FIT files by recording these while walking, running or cycling these courses. The courses recorded should match the published text route descriptions. Several people are working this.
  • Water/Gatorade Support – Mark and Clyde now have access to the H2O calendar signup page, which is expanded through October.
  • Announcements – Introduce yourself. Ask if anyone’s new, and welcome them. Recognize who marked the course for Saturday, and who put out the mid-point water (and where that is) for Sunday. Get people to join/renew. Volunteers needed for programs & functions. 
  • Course Markingon Saturday– Marcy has recruited people to “own” Saturday courses.
  • Breakfasts and Potlucks after runs – re-starting these traditions.
  • eNews – migrate from MailChimp to Constant Contact (Young) – no update.
  • PRR runs – weekly Thursday evening and monthly Saturday runs.

Programs and Events:

  • ITP – starts June 22.
