Matt exults in a perfect Ridge Run morning
In case I got confused, Suzanne labeled her banana for me
All comers week started four years ago as an overflow camp for those who didn’t register in time for masters week. The week no longer plays second fiddle to masters week. It has its own vibe and it’s loaded with folks who are passionate about their running and looking for a vibrant week. With sixteen returners and nine new faces, the week was a blast of fun, speed and laughs. With an age span from Phoebe at 19 to folks in their 60’s, all comers week is something special.
This week ends the summer camp season. See you next year when there will again be three high school cross country camps, a second all comers week and a beginning runners weekend on the schedule. Thank you runners for a successful and memorable 2015!
