Orange Runner's Club

** January 16th & 30th - February 13th & 27th in 2022 **

The Winter Series has been around in one form or another for about as long as the Orange Runners Club and arises to fill a need for us to test our ability to brave the elements and his/her fitness level at the time of year when many runners have put the running shoes up or have traded outside running activity for trips to the gym. Yes - there are other people like you who yearn to get back outdoors and feel the Winter's wind in their face!

- Thanks to everyone who came out -

Winter Series 2021 Race#4 Winner
Current course records.
Race #4 kicks off the furloughed Grand Prix.

This 2021 Orange Runners Club Winter Series was in honor and recognition of the dedication and the sacrifice by the many people who not only have been affected by the global pandemic in 2020 but also to those who are still bravely working to resolve this devastating issue.

Race#1: First Responders
Race#2: COVID-19 Victims
Race#3 Healthcare Workers
Race#4: Vaccine Developers

The Winter Series 2021 was totally outdoors for proper social distancing so the course start and finish have been adjusted to accomodate this precaution.

Please review the 2021 course map.

The Orange Runners Club Winter Series takes place in the Middletown Community Campus, an open course but not heavily trafficked so ideal for a road race. The surface is all pavement, but there is chance for water hazards because of the season such as snow and ice that can make it a potential technical challenge. Run smart! It will be two loops starting and and ending on and near Seward Ave.
