Thank you for coming out despite the cool, very wet conditions! The 25th Annual Bill Roney Memorial will certainly be one to remember. We persevered the downpour before the start and somehow had an hour of a break just in time for the 5k. At some point we were cold and damp, but somehow when your in the presence of running family, we laugh about it and forget how our skin was numb. When we look back we will remember the laughs and friendly faces!
We always strive to provide the best experience and welcome any comments to help us make next year better.
Congrats all our finishers and age group award winners. If you did not claim your award, which went 3 deep in each category, you can pick it up at the Utica shop.
