2010 in Review

We had a great turnout and a fantastic time in our first ever Yorktown Roadrunners summer youth running club!  A total of 34 youth members joined and participated in at least some of our activities.  Nineteen members (and several parents) attended our mid-summer Wilderness Trail Run and Picnic at Mounds State Park.  Seven members completed the 5k Challenge at the end of the season.  We also had 16 members who earned special awards for the efforts and participation over the summer.
