Short review

 

In celebration of its 60th year as a running club, the Traverse City Track Club presents the 60th Season of its weekly Summer Series running program. 

Beginning June 16th through August 18th, this 10-week free program for all ages and abilities provides a format enabling participants to run with others at a weekly pre-determined area course, receive an official time, and gather points throughout the 10 week period, to see how they compare to others at the same course.  

A point system uses each week’s total number of participants to establish a ranking. Overall standing is based on both participation and finish comparison. At the end of the series, the Top 10 point earners male and female receive awards, and those who participate in all 10 events also receive special recognition.

Most courses originate in Traverse City’s Huron Hills neighborhood. All courses are marked (start/finish), mapped, and previewed on the club’s website. 

Following are each week’s events:

1.    June 16, TC Central High, 3 mile flat 
2.    June 23, TC Central High, 5K hilly
3.    June 30, TC Central High, 4 mile flat, handicap
4.    July 7, TC Central High, 4 mile hilly prediction
5.    July 14, Rasho Farm, 5K cross country: (XC course for Farmland)
6.    July 21, TC Central High, track 5K age-graded (12 ½ laps, CHS track)
7.    July 28, TC Central High, 7 mile handicap 
8.    August 4, TC Central High, 8 x 1k alternating relay combined handicaps
9.    August 11, 5K on Trails - Timber Ridge
10.    August 18, Hull Park, 5k; TART pathway, followed by awards at Filling Station

The handicap, prediction, and age-graded features for half of the series events allows for those who may be concerned the events are for runners/walkers of all abilities.

To participate in this free program, participants only need to be a member of the Traverse City Track Club and sign-up online at the link: Only one registration is needed for the entire season. 

This program has been designed for the over 700 members of the TCTC, but true to the club mission, it is open to anyone who wants to try.
