Memorial Day Weekend Races, in honor of all that have died while serving in the Armed Forces!

Armed Forces Day 5K   Race Results
May 21, Armed Forces Day 5K at Calverton!  http://ArmedForcesDay5KatCalverton.itsyourrace.com/
Results were posted live online as the race was going on with finisher photo's and finisher certificates. Thank you to all participants and volunteers and the Results Timing staff!
Armed Forces Day 5K is the second new race this year of our goal to produce 4-6 new races in 2016 and an additional 4-6 in 2017. Join The Island Running Club and help us reach our goals.
We are planning a Veterans Day race on the same course for early November. The Armed Forces 5K was a practice run toward making that happen. The Island Running Club will be forming a Veterans Committee to help organize this run as well as working with veterans throughout the year. Veterans are invited to join the club at a reduced fee and serve on the committee. You don't need to be a veteran to serve on the committee. The committee is open to families and friends in support of veterans.
This weekend we turn to remembering those who died while serving in the Armed Forces.
