April NEWS!

Hi Team!

I apologize that I haven’t done any website updates in a few weeks. We welcomed new member and runner DONICA WILLIAMS. And we’ve had many folks run some spectacular races…

RACE RECAP:
Robin Cartright
ran the Publix Savannah Half Marathon.

Kristopher Wilhelm represented RCTC at the Heritage Run and brought home a trophy bigger than his head!

Joy Knop + Katina Stewart (relay) and John and Susan Bennett ran the Bainbridge Half Marathon.

Leisa Eastman ran the Chattahoochee Challenge Off-Road Duathlon (1st Place AG!).

Chad Johnson, Beverly Hamilton, Chris White and John Wheeler slayed the Albany Marathon. Tiffany Nunnally, Brianna and Colin Prinsloo (1st place AG!), and Morgan Garcia ran the Half.

If you ran Springtime Tallahassee, please message me so I can add you!

Lance Parker, Paul Pickles, Marty Hufstetler and Jim Simpson are resting up for Ironman 70.3 Florida / Haines City Sunday. Wish ’em luck!

UPCOMING:
The new Georgia Multisports sprint in Adel ( A Southern Tri) is coming up May 15. Please save the date for this great local event and the post-race festivities, currently being planned by Alison Parker and Brianna Prinsloo.

Thanks in advance to Susan Bennett and Alison Parker for stepping up to plan the Cordele/GA Vets post-race BBQ in August.

We just received some race discount codes thanks to Georgia Multisports and DRCSports, so check your inbox (or spam) for an updated list I sent last week.

YMCA Kids Triathlon Camp is set for July 18-21 at Butler-Mason YMCA.

FREE RACES:
JT Harrison just handled a terrific RCTC Swim Clinic for us, so we’ve rewarded him with a FREE RACE Entry to DRCSports Jax #2 (his choice). Thanks, JT! If you missed the clinic, you missed a lot of fun and some great prizes, courtesy of DASH!

Since Chad + Beverly Johnson put on a great RCTC Run Clinic, we rewarded them with a FREE RACE Entry to DRCSports Crystal River #2 (Bev is racing it!).

And we just did a drawing for the DRCSports Crystal River Sprint #1 FREE RACE Entry, which goes to KATINA STEWART! Thanks to my assistant for choosing a name!

We have THREE more FREE RACE entries to give away. If you want them, please message us with the details of which one you want and why. We have Jax #1 + #3 and Crystal River #3 available. A great way to secure a free race is to volunteer! (hint, hint.)

RCTC’S FUTURE:
It’s time for me (Renee) to take a step back where RCTC is concerned. I’ll remain active as funds-juggler, designer/apparel handler, webmaster and administrative hole-filler but clinic, meeting, ride/run and event planning will now be left in the hands of our very capable VOLUNTEERS. We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s help! If you want to get involved, please let us know. We will find a role for you. 🙂

  • Chris Stroh is in charge of CYCLING clinics.
  • Chad + Beverly Johnson are in charge of RUN clinics.
  • JT Harrison + Angie Bruhl are in charge of SWIM clinics.
  • Alison Parker handles SOCIAL EVENT Planning. She will be supported by Brianna + Susan and anyone else who’d like to help.
  • Lance Parker handles AD SALES + SPONSORSHIPS.
  • Joy Knop handles gear distribution, new member set-up and helps with calendar updates.

PLEASE HELP! We are in need of someone to gather monthly race results and plans and write (or help write) these recaps, as well. I fear that doing this mostly myself is unfair to this incredible team, as I am likely overlooking some achievements along the way. Please let us know if you can help!

We would also like to get back to scheduling regular BIKE RIDES + RUNS, which can easily be posted to Facebook and to the website calendar. Please volunteer! Your club needs you.

If you joined RCTC and didn’t receive your tech tee (while supplies last), auto decals or member ID, please check in with DASH/JOY KNOP after next Wednesday.

If I’ve overlooked anything, please let me know. Thanks, all! Enjoy this gorgeous weather!!!
