/template-parts/post/content.php

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).

Volunteers to Help Striders at a Rock ‘n Roll Water Stop

/template-parts/post/content.php

Get in on the fun even if you’re not running the Rock ‘n Roll Half marathon.  

Join the Tidewater Striders at the water stop in front of the Gorilla at the Amusement Park, 3.3 miles from the start. Volunteers need to be parked by 5:00 am because all traffic closes at 6am. Park at Birdneck Elementary school, only a short walk to the amusement park. The water stop should be  breaking down between 9-9:30. If you can’t stay for the whole time period, that is fine. You will get a T-shirt and a hat, and possibly a concert ticket!  Contact the Tidewater Strider’s and they will provide you the link and code if you plan to help out.
