    Congratulations to all finishers of the inaugural Redmond Harvest Half Marathon, put on jointly by LSRC and Seattle United Runners! We had over 300+ finishers on Labor Day Monday, and saw many fast times and PRs on course. Individual results may be found at: redmondharvesthalf.com/results and photos may be found at: redmondharvesthalf.com/photos. Check out the great albums by SU photographers!

    It took many months to get this race off the ground and to race day, and we honestly could not have done it without a lot of volunteer help. We had over 60 volunteers day of, not including family and friends who also pitched in last minute. Many thanks to all our volunteers for their time and energy! I especially want to call out the following:

    - The race planning committee, which consisted (from LSRC) of Jordan Andersen, Zach Fung, Nelson La, Sophia Liu, and Stanley Chen; and (from SU)

    - Jeff Cao, Mei Chen, Yingwei Liu, and Dan Wu. We worked together closely these past 6 months to get to race day.

    - Nina Tang, 60 Acres Aid Station Captain, for (on very short notice) driving my car with supplies down to start and back home when we realized everything was not going to fit in Jordan's van. You guys already had a busy weekend but got up at 5AM anyway to help set up before going to your aid stations.

    - Shawn Pearce, 60 Acres Aid Station Captain, for bringing coffee to the volunteers at the start and aid stations. I don't drink straight coffee, but I'm sure many appreciated this!

    - Brian Lee, who selflessly stopped while on his way to start to help Zach finish putting up all the course markings. Even with both of them, we barely got the markings up in time. (Brian, I feel terrible you missed the gun because of this.)

    - John Nguyen and Andr√© Udovenk√ł, who worked double shifts in the morning when we realized we needed more hands to help set up the start. Thanks for showing up on such short notice!

    - Skye Pazuchanics, who worked a double shift as course monitor on the Leary Way Bridge after the second shift volunteers no-showed. She didn't need to, but supported everyone until the very end (I hope your cowbell blister is better!).

    - Catherine Williams, who arrived at the start ready to help however she could! I was so glad to have your help on the random little things that kept popping up, and especially for helping with our younger volunteer!

    I've been a participant, volunteer, and race committee member, so am no stranger to events. But, there was something really special about seeing everyone and everything come together for the first time on race day. To see so many running friends and acquaintances lining up with excitement and anticipation, and doing their very best. To have so many people support their friends, family, and community through volunteering. To see so many people from different clubs and backgrounds laughing and enjoying the day, together. Running - and sport in general - truly can unite us, and show others the best version of ourselves. To me, that was the true reward of being a part of this inaugural event, and I hope we can keep that spirit going for many more years to come.

    Every year, the Redmond High School puts on a 5k on a Cross Country style course where community members get to race with the Redmond Cross Country runners. This year there was a little bit of wildfire smoke in the air, but that did not put a damper on the amount of fun we had! The course was a little bit different and simpler than it had been previously, but the same trails were used. Results can be found here:

    While it really wasn't a day for PR's it certainly was for Pies & Pints! A 4th of July tradition in Carnation is the 5k race for pies where top three in each age category receive a pie of their choosing from the Remlinger Farm store. Temperatures were starting to climb during the race on this bright sunny day, making the post run beer or soda that much more rewarding for all the participants. Special Thanks to Randi Huo for taking photos of everyone as they crossed the finish line!

    After the discontinuation of the Rock n' Roll associated half marathons in our area (the Labor Day Half & the Rock n Roll Washington) , Lake Sammamish Run Club & Seattle United Runners are teaming up to try and fill the void by putting on an officially timed, and scored race called the Redmond Harvest Half Marathon, Monday Labor Day September 4!

    With the Rock n Roll race disappearing, we know we have big shoes to fill, so we are doing everything we can to make this race a great experience for you! Highlights include:

    - Low registration fees compared to other half marathons

    - Fast USATF certified course to help you get a PR

    - Finisher's medals and gender specific shirt sizes

    - Overall, Age Group, and Top Team awards for Men and Women

    - Post race food, beverages, and beer tickets at Post Doc Brewing

    - Pacers from a 1:30 to 2:30 half marathon provided by the Seattle Green Lake Running Group

    We had a fundraising team for Beat the Bridge last weekend, and all ran very well (and we all beat the bridge!) Lucky for us, the temperatures cooled down just in time for a more pleasant experience on the fun 8k course that started outside of Husky Stadium, wandered across the Montlake and University Bridge (which goes up 20 minutes after the last runner crosses the start line) and finished inside Husky Stadium. We also are closing in on our fundraising goal in support of curing Type 1 Diabetes. You can still add to our total here!

    Several members of the club headed down to Eugene for the Eugene Marathon & Half Marathon April 30, which starts next to the historic Hayward Field premise and finishes inside the new stadium. It attracts over 5000 participants, which include past and future Olympians, among recreational, and sub-elite runners from all over the world. It was a cool drizzly morning, the course had changed slightly from previous years, adding some hills, arguably making it more difficult than before. Nonetheless, we saw some awesome times by our runners!

     Marathon  Time  Highlights
     Sophia Liu  2:44:56  Perfectly executed! 7th woman
     Randi Huo  3:25:32  Ran w/ Molly. Hung on and grinded through
     Molly Ha  3:26:56  Ran w/ Randi. Stuck to it despite not feeling great
     Mike Rossi  2:35:50  Strong finishing kick and 14 minute PR!
     Jordan Andersen  2:40:04  Paced Women's Olympic Time Qualifier for 22 miles
     Adam Schroeder  2:44:56  Paced Sophia
     Gabi Kliot  2:46:21  Paced Sophia for 22 miles, stuck to it to claim 1st AG!
     Stanley Chen  3:06:58  Grinded through to snag over a minute off PR!
     Ben Ha  3:58:44  First marathon!
     
     
     Half Marathon  Time  Highlights
     Tanya Wicht  2:19:21  Very evenly paced!

    The results for the Challenge Northwest New Year Challenge are in and official! We accumulated 9182 miles among 46 participants for a commanding first place in team total miles, and second place in team average miles per person (199.6 miles). Outstanding! And thanks to all you participants and the amazing performance of the team, we have elected to donate a cent per mile to the charity the challenge supported. That's an additional $91.82 to KidVantage, formerly known as Eastside Baby Corner!
