Running Club Loses A Friend

It is with great sadness, the board announces the passing of Elizabeth, Betty L. Cronin.  Betty was a member of the board of directors for about 35 years, as well as a past president, before retiring in 2018.  Betty was the face and  director of the running club’s annual cross country race, the Boondocks Breakaway 5K,  for many years.  More recently she was the race director for the Zombie Half Marathon.  Her presence in the running community will be sorely missed.
