Madison Area Running Series Newsletter - May Edition

Here we are half way through the 2007 Madison Area Running Series! Can you believe it is May already? Well, we thought it was time to give you some brief race reports. Be sure to check out the website to see how you rank in the series. www.madisonseries.com
We had a lot of people sign up for the series that morning, so it made it a competitive event. Wendy Miller was 3rd overall for women, taking first for the series and first in the 20-29 age division. Sandy Gregorich was second for the MARS participants, and Beth Schadd was third. And for men, Bill Gilmore took 9th overall, and first for men in the series that morning, and Ron Mexico was second in the series.
It was a great race with over 250 runners, and a post party at the Quaker Steak & Lube. For complete results, check out results at onlineraceresults.com

Plans for the 2007 Madison Area Running Series

Dear MARS Participant:
We hope that you enjoyed participating in the 2006 Madison Area Running Series. The year is now over and we are beginning to plan for 2007, the 4th year of the series. We are happy to report that the MARS has over 140 active participants as of today, and interest continues to grow.
The 20006 awards ceremony will be on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 7:15 pm, at Fleet Feet Sports Madison, located at 8440 Old Sauk Road, Madison. Even if you are not receiving an award, please come for the good company, food and drinks, and a chance to win a door prize. We will also discuss the 2007 MARS.
Our desire is to make MARS better, and we welcome your ideas and suggestions. In 2007, the MARS will do the following:
  • Send emails to all participants prior to each Series event.
  • Create a quarterly email newsletter introducing events and recapping highlights of previous races. (This is a new item, offered by Jessica at Fleet Feet Sports.)
  • Host a year-end banquet with trophies for the top three participants in each category, door prizes (from Fleet Feet and others) and food provided by Big Apple Bagels of Sun Prairie.

Thank you for your participation and we hope to see you again in 2007.

Content IndicatorNews Letter-January 2006
Plans for 2006 Madison Area Running Series

Bigger things are planned for 2006, including a name change, to the Madison Area Running Series, which we hope state announce more clearly that this is a running series, but that joggers and walkers are very welcome. The planned list of events for 2006 is growing by 3 events to 16 races, but only the top 12 will be scored. This allows runners to miss or skip 4 events and still be in the running for year-end awards. Events for 2006 include the following (some dates may be tentative);

New Year's Day Dash 5 Mile Jan. 1
Freeze for Food 5K Jan. 21
Valentines Day 5K Feb. 11
50 Furlong (about 10K) Mar. 11
Black Earth 10 mile Apr. 1
Lake Monona 20K May 6
Dandelion Dash 5K June 10
Strawberry Fest 10K June 17
WTC 3K (tbd)
Capitol Mile (July 23)
Oregon Fun Run 5K Aug. 5
Depot To Depot 5 mile Aug. 12
Cow Chip Classic 5K Sept. 2
RSVP 5K (tbd)
Fall 15K Oct. 22
MATC Turkey Trot 5 mile/5K Nov. 4
The Series is also planning to have a 2006 MARS Racing Shirt. The technical top will include a list of the 2006 events and our sponsor names. Stay tuned for ordering information. [update: a tshirt was not available]
The final events of the night were Fleet Feet door prizes, and a drawing for participants in the last three Series events, RSVP, Fall 15K, and Turkey Trot. Winners of the drawing for gift certificates were Mary Anne Hinkes, Ana Considine, Bev Lampe, and Tim Goihl.
Thanks for a great 2005 goes out to our participating running clubs and partners; the Running Club of UW, Hash House Harriers, the Wisconsin Track Club, Movin Shoes Running Club, MATC, and the Headhunters Triathlon Club, and to our race directors, without whom this would not be possible.
