CRR Jim Fischer

This site is launched on this day in honor of Coach and CRR Jim Fischer, whose nearly three decades of UD cross-country and track runners have logged many a mile on Creek Road and whose coaching career at UD has, unfortunately, been cut short.

Jim has tirelessly worked to make running fun for all ages and all abilities and will be sorely missed within the University of Delaware community. All who are associated or have been associated with Creek Road Runners wish him the best as he plans his next route, which we hope includes his remaining in this area and staying connected with the running community that has benefitted so greatly for so long from his tutelage, advocacy, and love of the sport.

CRR Matt Robinson, CRR’s self-appointed CEO, hails this new site as “a positive step forward” for the nearly 30-year-old group.  And, yes, because this site features a blogging component, you may comment on any post. You may also subscribe to email notification (see button in righthand column), beyond the occasional ticklers you’ll still get if you’re on the group mailing list. As in the past, posts will comprise notices about upcoming events, race results, news, and kudos—for giving props to our runners for off-road accomplishments.  CRR Mark Deshon (pictured in righthand column) is the site administrator and webmaster.

We hope you bookmark this site and keep coming back for more!
