Thank you to all the great participants and volunteers who came out for the 27th Annual Women's Distance Festival on Sunday! Race Director Eric Biedermann and his group did a fantastic job, and our sponsors outdid themselves with edible goodies, course support, and lovely prizes !
We were fortunate that the weather cooperated completely - no more rain Saturday night or Sunday morning, so there was only a minor diversion around a large pool of water on the course, and a fun crew of course marshals directed racers around it.
We had a fantastic 194 registrants, and 163 finishers !

WOMEN'S DISTANCE FESTIVAL
JULY 15, 2012
The 26th Running of the Club's Women's Distance Festival 5K Run and 5K Walk was a great success, thanks to the excellent efforts of race director Eric Biedermann who was ably assisted by many volunteers, notably his wife Laura Biedermann, Club co-president Wendy Wiggins, Shannon Zanelli, and Steve Jett. Coach John Reardon also provided invaluable assistance, and Rodger Sack was outstanding as the event timer.
We appreciate our sponsors: Heart & Sole Sports, Great Harvest Bread Company, and Trader Joe's. Our thanks also to lululemon athletica for their hospitality during packet pickup, and for additional considerations.
Congratulations to 2012 winners:
5K Run Overall - Liz Turner
5K Run Masters - Lisa Valle
5K Walk Overall - Laura Draelos
Thank you to all of the women who participated in this year's events. You are the reason we do this each year...we celebrate what makes you special. And we hope to see you all again next year!
