With the holidays past and the new year upon us, we have some familiar events returning to the Twin City Track Club calendar. Here’s an update of what’s been happening with TCTC and what’s coming up.
In November, we made a chilly start at Miller Park for this year’s Thanksgiving Day Hash Run. We ran and laughed our way around the Ardmore neighborhood and only got lost a few times. After the run, we enjoyed coffee, hot chocolate and snacks, along with some great conversation, before heading out for our Thanksgiving Day festivities.
December saw the return of the TCTC Holiday Party at the Village Square Tap House in Clemmons. We ate, we drank, we listened to local music and we may have shot a little pool. TCTC President Er Ralston announced that Winston-Salem has been named a Runner Friendly City by the Road Runners Club of America and Heather Hugosson was named TCTC Volunteer of the Year.
Also in December, we donned our festive apparel and celebrated a joyful return to the annual Hats and Bells Elf Run on Christmas Eve. The 4ish-mile run, complete with Santa and elf hats and lots of jingle bells, was a great reminder that in running, community is everything.
As you receive this newsletter in early January, we will have rung in the new year with the New Year’s Day Strava Art Run. What an amazing way to celebrate 2022 and set the tone for the year to come!
Saturday, February 19, the Winter Seminar is back! We are excited to welcome the inspiring Abbey D’Agostino Cooper as our speaker for 2022. Abbey is the most decorated Ivy League athlete in track and field and cross country, and she is an Olympian with an amazing story of courage and sportsmanship, but these days Abbey is looking ahead. Sign up today (space is limited) for an inspiring evening.
