Hello, we are still here! Like the rest of you we are trying our best to navigate all that is going on. Mask, no mask, businesses open, businesses closed, curbside service, working from home (yeah we know how that goes), Zoom meetings, educating online, it goes on and on!

How about a little normalcy for an hour? Intervals you say? Well, tomorrow is Tuesday! You know what that means, TNT, Tuesday Night Track! Or Tuesday, whenever, Track.

Trying to keep us all on the same level during these times. If we run the same workouts at least we can feel like we are together.

Even though Coach P&P can’t be with us in person, they are with us in spirit. Always thinking of the club members they are giving us the weekly workout.

Tomorrow’s interval session will be:

3 X 600

3 X 400

3 X 300

For 38 years SCRs and the City of Santa Clarita have combined to host a “Independence Day Classic”, 5 and 10k race.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and in the interest of public safety, the annual Independence Day Classic Races put on by the Santa Clarita Runners on the Fourth of July have been canceled. However, the City of Santa Clarita and Santa Clarita Runners are partnering to bring the yearly 5K and 10K races to participants virtually for free!

Those interested in running the virtual 5K or 10K can register for free through Scrunners.org. Runners will be able to complete the distance – 3.1 miles or 6.2 miles – anywhere they choose over the Fourth of July weekend. Once a runner has completed the race, he or she will submit the finishing time through Active to be scored after the event.

Whether you want to rack up the miles in your neighborhood or go for a long run through the City’s off-street trail system, you get to choose the course! All you need to do is register online, run your race and have fun.

For the past 30 years, the Santa Clarita Runners Club has donated all proceeds from the Independence Day Classic Races to high school cross country programs in Santa Clarita. Please consider donating to the Club so high school runners can continue to receive needed financial support.

Wow, what a finish! It has been a close competition for the last 7 weeks. The teams changed places many times and took on the weekly challenge. Not only did we all have fun, it kept us in shape by giving us a goal. We finally crossed the finish line!

The Covid Challenge was a weekly challenge between 10 five person teams. Participants were placed on a team based off a 5k time they submitted. Carolyn and Sue made equal teams that averaged out to 26-26:30 per team. No easy task!

We were given a run of various times or distances. Each team member ran the challenge and reported there time/distance to their team captain. A team average was reported each week.

The challenges included up to a 20 min run and as short as a half mile. Each participant received 3 Race Series points and the weekly winning team received an additional point, maximum points was 5.

This event was presented to the club by Margaret Reilly-Bates,, who son’s college team did it to stay in shape while not training together.

Thanks to coordinators Carolyn Gordon and Sue Davis. They had to make equal teams, tally up each teams times, figure out the average and produce the results!

The following is a note from them;

All COVID DASH teams have completed their final challenge!! You each survived 7 weeks of various runs. We thank you for participating, hope you each met someone you didn’t know before (most likely not in person with social distancing), were encouraged to get out and run when you really didn’t want to, and, when the weeks run was over with, you had some fun! Thank you to the captains for getting results in and encouraging your teams along the way!

Here are the 7th weeks results, we had 8 teams out of 10 improve their overall team average mile time from week 2, and several individual runners ran faster mile splits!

1st Keepin’ the Distance 6:42 (earning first place points!)

2nd Kickin’ Asphalt 6:45

3rd Cloud 9 6:46

4th Stayin’ Alive 6:53

5th Whippet Good 7:01

6th Covid ConTENders 7:03

7th Second to None 7:10

8th Better Chafe Than Sorry 7:11

9th SEAL 7:23

10th Fast & CURE_ious 7:31

Don’t forget to go to the website, scrunners.org and report your Race Series Points, (for this event):
Every participant earns 3 points; weekly team winners will all earn 1 point with a 2-time maximum (Maximum points a participant can earn is 5 for this event). If anyone has any questions, please feel free to reach out to Carolyn.

Keep Runnin’,
