Headline News

To all GSH club members:

        Please be advised that two national USATF championships are being held in our nearby area (easy driving distance) the next two weekends.

        This Monday October 12th is the famous Tufts 10K for women in Boston and next weekend on Sunday October 18th is the USATF National Masters 5K cross country championships in Saratoga Springs, NY.  The club will pay for entries but the deadline for early entries is tomorrow, October 9th.  After that the entry fee increases dramatically so please let me know ASAP if you are interested.  Details can be found at the race website via  We already have a complete 60 and over men's team (more are always

welcome) but Francis needs help in the 50 and over team and we need entries for the 40 and over.  We could score well if everyone showed up and this race is a preview for the National Club 10K cross country champs in San Francisco December 12th which we plan on going to.

        Please spread the word on these to races as well as the New England Champs cc in November.     Pete Stasz
