A virtual marathon with a difference. Most virtual races are run for a specific distance from any location you choose at any time you choose.
The PTC Virtual Marathon is created from the PTC Races in 2019 you choose to run.
Sign up for the PTC Virtual marathon and then run your own marathon using the races on the 2019 PTC Race Schedule. The goal is to run PTC races that total a distance of 42K or more. Times for the races run will be totaled for your PTC Virtual Marathon time.

We had a big turn out at our club’s Annual Award Banquet, and it was attended by many of the past winners of the Hall Of Fame and the Grand Prix. We took advantage of that for some group pictures!
Some of the Hall Of Fame winners, past and present, gathered for a picture:

Start planning to participate in 2019: if you participated in any HRSGP events in 2018, you will roll over into 2019, but otherwise, please fill out a new entry form on the HRSGP site at www.hrsupergp.com
In your planning, please include at least 1 race from each of the three clubs to qualify for this contest.
This year the Peninsula Track Club again hosted The Fast Before The Feast 5K on Thanksgiving Morning to benefit the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank. Thanks to all our volunteers for turning out en force and the 900 runners that have made it a personal tradition, the magic happened. At our club’s General Membership meeting, on December 11, 2018, the PTC and FBF Race Director, Jamie Porter Cox, presented the check of $13,562 to the most grateful CEO Karen Joyner and Donna Tighe, Community Relations Manger (pictured below).

He will provide some practical advice for preventing injuries in the first place, as well how to avoid making injuries worse by doing the wrong thing.
