The Final track workout of 2021 on October 13th is the

Frankie 5k MEMBERSHIP MILE Challenge.

(A friendly competition)

On October 13th, the quickest male and female found on the track running a mile distance, (4x400) will both win a 2022 ORC membership and a $100 cash prize sponsored by Frankie 5k.

Congratulations to Allison Henson, F (7:21), and David Madden, M (5:35), for being the fastest people on the track running the Frankie 5k Membership Mile Challenge on October 13th, 2021. In addition to the $100 each from Frankie they will also have their memberships extended into 2022. Well done, and thought they made it look easy!

Bill Gaa, director of the Knights of Columbus Kris Kringle 5k that is coming up in December, surprised us all and offered a cash prize to the fastest male and female walkers on the same mile track course.
The winning walkers were Naomi Forter, F (13:29) and Martin Nowak, M (13:28). Congratulations to them - and to Bill for his impromptu and spontaneous purse that enhanced the spirit of the event.

Salute to the Track Season
Following the track workout/Membership Mile race, October 13th, we plan to get together at the HighBall Tavern on 42 Ingrassia road, (formerly Orrios), just up the road from the Monhagen Middle school track for a beverage and some socializing. They also have food available (menu).
