President’s Message July/August 2024

Hello TCTC!  Taking over the presidency from John Anderson leaves me with some big shoes to fill, but with a board stacked full of talent and dedication…I have no doubt that this will be a fantastic year for our club.

So who am I?  My name is Terry Wilmoth and I have been a TCTC member since 2017.  I have been part of the timing crew and TCTC board since 2017 and took over as race director for the $5K Series in 2021.  I have completed one marathon (2011 Marine Corp), several half marathons, a couple of 10Ks, and numerous 5Ks.  Speed is not my strongest running attribute: my pace for a 5K is around 10:30 – 11:00 min per mile and half marathons will be around 12:30 – 13:00 min per mile pace.  A bit ironic that a “back of the packer” is now leading a running club!

What’s in store for this year?  Hopefully a ton of ways to get YOU involved!  You joined the club, now we want you to become an active part.

Our Membership team is devising an incentive plan to reward you for the number of volunteer hours that you give!  Want to earn TCTC merchandise?  Give back to the running community by volunteering at TCTC races or events to earn some really cool swag!

Our Activities team is putting together some fun, community-building events for members to partake in!  Group runs, hash runs, breakfast runs…..any kind of run will always be our focus, but we also give back to the community with Hanes Park cleanup dates, volunteering with other organizations races, and our Winter Seminar – where we bring in an outstanding speaker to motivate and advise us!

Our Communications team is working hard to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening, member spotlights, and showing you the “fun” side of being part of our club!  Undecided on whether to join TCTC at our Destination Race “Richmond”?  Just look back at the pics from Destination “Greenville Swamp Rabbit” to see the fun that was had!

Now….what’s in store for YOU this year?  And how can TCTC help you become a better runner?

Happy Running!
