Message From the Sub 5 President

Dear Sub5 Club Members:

In the midst of the fall running season we that you are enjoying some of the best running weather of the year.

The Sub 5 Track Club would like to announce the Veterans Benefit Virtual 5k Nov. 4-18. Proceeds from the race benefit the Bangor Veterans’ Home. We’ve created a basic event for our first virtual race and kept it inexpensive (under $15) in hopes of lots of participation to support a good cause.

While we haven’t been able to gather for races, weekly group runs have continued this summer after a brief hiatus. Thank you to Dave Farrar who has promoted the gatherings via the Facebook page while also encouraging social distancing and other CDC guidelines during the runs. The runs will continue as CDC guidelines allow, meeting weekly in Bangor at 5:30 on the waterfront near the Seadog. Kudos also to Deedra Dapice for her “On-Your-Own” track workouts posted this summer on the Facebook page.

With nearly every Tradewinds Sub 5 Race Series canceled we will be unable to generate standings and awards this year. We hope to return to series races soon.

We will soon be setting up membership renewals this winter. Don’t forget your club discounts still work during the pandemic, and a discount on a pair of new shoes covers the cost of your membership!

For Sub5,
Joe Roberts
