Like all runners, members of the Melrose Running Club have really missed in real life (IRL) races.
Due to State and Local Public Health Department rules, we suspended all club runs in March. Mid summer we started Tuesday night runs for members only with strict rules and pre-registration.
Everyone missed getting together on Tuesday nights and we all really missed racing. Virtual races are just not the same thing.
Melrose Running Club Virtual Relay
While the weather is still good and with all precautions observed, Jim Carson organized the Melrose Running Club Virtual Relay.
Jim manages our Sunday Long Run program and was elected Club President in October.
With an eye towards safe club activities where we can get together and do what we love, Jim organized this relay as one of his first acts as President.
Here are some photos taken by several club members including Bobby Taylor, Jim Carson, Mary O’Connell, Jose Viveiros. Some photos I wasn’t sure who took them so thank you to everyone.
These were all poached off of Facebook and are in no particular order.
I did minimal editing and please feel free to save any that you like. My apologies if I missed anyone.
