Xenia Marathon

Postponed due to COVID-19 Corona virus

On Sunday April 5th  is the  Annual Ohio River Road Runners Club Full and Half Marathons.  Both events begin at 8:00am  at the NEW Xenia YMCA at 336 South Progress Dr in Xenia. The event winds around Xenia and then follows the bike path to Spring Valley and then comes back.  We will be needing 15-20 volunteers. Also bicycle-mobile operators would be helpful. Checkin/Net Control will be at the XWARN Communications Trailer, which will be setup at the YMCA starting at 6:30am, we will making assignments starting at 7:00am.   A directed Net will be held on the 147.165 repeater (123Hz PL).

Please come out and help out with this first large event for the year!

Resolution Run

Reminder that the Resolution Run is Tuesday, December 31.

15 of you have confirmed that you will be there and I will send further information in a few days.

Also, five of you have volunteered to help tow the generator lights out onto the course and retrieve them after the event. Again, I’ll send a note to you in a few days. If you didn’t sign up for this, but would like to be involved, let me know as we can always use a few more hands.

Here is the information for those of you who might want to join in the fun: Resolution Run 5k, New Year’s Eve (Tuesday, December 31), start/Finish at Beavercreek High School.

There is a VE Test Session from 5:00 to 7:00 (Last chance to get a license or upgrade for 2019!).

Race starts at 8:00 and takes about an hour. We plan to have the usual potluck snack table before the race so come early and socialize. We can use as many operators as possible. We help to light the course with headlights and more eyes makes for better response to problems. It’s okay to just show up to the rear of the school around 7:00 to get an assignment, but advance notice is appreciated, especially if you are able to help with the lights. We will use the 147.165 (+) (123.0) repeater with 146.91 (-) as the back up.
