There will be a unique 10K trail run—“The Race To Save The World – Enoch Lee Memorial Run”—on Saturday April 18th in Middle Run Park (off Possum Hollow Road) in Enoch’s memory.

The start of the race, in fact, is very close to Enoch’s family’s home. More information can be found at www.runreg.com/enoch.

Note: Anyone who wants to order a special race t-shirt needs to register by this Friday, April 3rd.

The race is part of a trail-running series www.trailcreekseries.orgCRR Brian Bahnson, whose wife Lauri Webber is one of the promoters of the Trail Creek Series, invites you to support and get the word out about the race.

All (100%) of the proceeds will benefit the Enoch Lee Memorial Fund.

photo of Matt RobinsonSelf-proclaimed, self-appointed Creek Road Runners CEO CRR Matt Robinson publicly called out several of his peers in an opinion piece in the Wilmington News Journal’s Saturday edition.

The article itself was interesting enough and then suddenly took a turn for the comic tongue-in-cheek.

Robinson writes, “If my runs were about inspection, I know I would be outrunning my fellow runners Charlie [CRR Charlie Riordan], Mark [CRR Mark Deshon], Steve [CRR Steve Goodwin], Paul A. [CRR Paul Amer] and Tom [CRR Tom Reed], and I know I could find better golfers than Avron [CRR Avron Abraham], Ian and Paul P. [CRR Paul Pusecker], but I enjoy the time away from inspection and distraction. I’d rather focus on thoughts and great ideas that have surfaced during one of those runs, or the good laughs and insightful conversations I have had with my running group and golfing buddies.”

Trying to impugn someone’s golf game is one thing, but, inspection or no inspection, Robinson has now thrown down the gauntlet for the aforementioned runners.

Read the entire article, which is actually pretty good, though maybe our CEO could be spending less time musing and more time on Creek Road.
