Those of you who have been following the running exploits of CRR Bill Rose on CreekRoadRunners.org will know better than to believe that the word “rookie” in any way applies to him, both as a competitive runner and as a local age-group standout.

OK, well Rose, who has enjoyed an extensive running and racing career, was honored last week by the Pike Creek Valley Running Club at its annual banquet as PCVRC’s 2022 Rookie of the Year. Not a bad return for someone who joined the club less than a year ago.

In recent years, Rose has done well at the shorter-distance races and was the stalwart captain of CRR’s successful Delaware Marathon 4-Person Relay teams.

We salute Rose, who recently retired from the University of Delaware and has been organizing CRR’s annual “Wring Out the Old, Ring in the New” trail run since 2019.

Congratulations and continued good running and racing!
