Ready, Set… Go #CHRC!

On Sunday, March 6, more than 5000 runners participated in one of NYRR’s favorites, the Salsa, Blues and Shamrock 5K in Washington Heights!


Among them were the lucky 13 #CHRCMen and #CHRCWomen accompanied by one special Leprechaun cheering on the sidelines at the finish. Members of the team had been preparing for this hilly race through the month of February and others used this as a training race for their bigger events of the 2016 spring racing season.

With five male finishers, this was a debut finish for the #CHRCMen’s team – meaning that the team had enough people to pool their results and get scored for club points! Congratulations to our men’s team!!


This is #CHRCWomen’s second year in the Club Standings and it’s certainly a strong start! The ladies ran with smiles for miles to bring in four points and a 6th place standing for Open Women B (20th overall). Now that’s a smashing start to the 2016 season!!

Big thanks to our Lucky Leprechaun (aka Akil) who cheered our 200m finish! We celebrated with a Dominican breakfast at Malecon. It was a CHRC kind of morning.


Our second Club Points race is this Saturday April 2nd at the Scotland 10K in Central Park! Both #CHRCWomen and #CHRCMen have full teams toeing the start line. Bring a sprig of heather and blare the bagpipes! These runners are ready for some fun! Here’s tae ye! Here’s tae us!

Join us afterward for some tattie scones and a party to celebrate at Berg’n in Crown Heights! All are welcome.
