IRONMAN TEXAS VOLUNTEER SIGNUP INFORMATION FOR TWRC MEMBERS

Okay everyone it is time again to sign up to volunteer at Run Aid Station #6 for the Ironman Texas event that takes place here in The Woodlands on Saturday May 19, 2012. Last year our water stop placed 3rd in the best aid station competition and this year we have a great theme planned that will be fun for the volunteers and runners alike. As a result of our volunteering last year the club received a donation of $1500.00 from Ironman that was put into our scholarship fund. This year if we can get more volunteers we should be able to hit that amount and possibly more.

2013 London Marathon

For TWRC members interested in participating in the 2013 London Marathon, please be advised of an alternative method of possibly gaining entry into the marathon without relying on the lottery system utilized by the London Marathon. Tony Allison and Don Cole (both participants of the TWRC squad traveling to the 2011 Berlin Marathon) have been researching means for guaranteed entry into the 2013 London Marathon and hope to interest other TWRC club members into joining them in putting together a TWRC delegation for the 2013 London Marathon.
