2012 KRRA Twosome Newsletter

Twosome Run - February 12, 2012

February means it's twosome time for the Kingston Road Runners.  In our annual mid-winter event, runners race the 5k course as individuals for KRRA Race Series points, but also as "twosome" teams, for total-combined-time age-group and overall medals.  Only male-female teams are eligible for medals, but same-gender teams are welcome as well.  All runners and volunteers are eligible for of our many random draw prizes.

Please note that the 2012 race will start at 10:30am (30 minutes earlier than in previous years).

See for full race details!

Once again, ZoomPhoto will be at the event as our official race photographer. Wear you race bib on your front and you'll have no trouble locating your race photos on the ZoomPhoto website.  We think you'll also be pleasantly surprised at the agreeable prices for both digital and printed copies of your pictures.
