IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN THE RACING TEAM!
There are currently 2 Road Races remaining for this year:  California International Marathon and the X-mas Relays. Our Women's team will have 8 woman running the marathon and we hope to have many more running in the relays. To view the road race series, click here. Though the 2011 schedule has not been updated yet, it will probably look very similar to 2010.

SOME BACKGROUND INFO: The Pacific Association sponsors individual and team competition through its Grand Prix race series in road racing, ultra racing and cross country.  The road series consists of ten to twelve road races spread around Northern California throughout the year. The races range in length from 1 mile to the marathon and with point totals being kept over the race series for both individuals and teams. The purpose of fielding teams in this competition is not so much about winning, but trying your best, promoting camaraderie, and getting perhaps a little outside your comfort zone by running against the best runners in Northern California. To compete for the club, you must join the Pacific Association USA Track and Field (PAUSATF) for $30 per year.  The club is supporting the team in several ways, one of which is if you run in three races during the year, LMJS will reimburse you for the cost of the team singlet. All ability levels are welcome at any time. The more, the merrier!

INTERESTED IN JOINING?: Please email Bz Churchman, the Women's team coordinator if you would like to join, or have more questions at:bzchurchman@sbcglobal.net

Men's Racing Team - Call for Members

Why should the ladies have all the fun? LMJS now has a women's racing team who are participating in USATF events. They raced in the Zippy 5K and the Marin Memorial Day race. So, of course, some of the men are wondering, "What about a men's team?" Jim Eckford would like to get the ball rolling by finding out who is interested. Team members will need to join the USATF which costs $30 per year. If you would like to be on a LMJS men's team, send Jim an email at: jeckford@gmail.com
