31st Annual Mill Cities Relay Invitational - Sign up now!

posted Nov 3, 2014, 7:10 AM by Cindy Regnante

Sunday, December 7, 2014
Hosted by the Clubs of the Mill Cities Alliance

TriFury Members,
The Mill Cities Relay is a great end of the year multiclub invitational 5 leg relay road race event. As TriFury, we're not looking to win it, just have some fun and have an excuse to run on the flat streets along the Merrimack River from Nashua to Lawrence on Sunday Dec 7th. And oh yeah, go to the party at the end. The event is put on by the running clubs of the Merrimack Valley as a celebration of team spirit and an end of the season party.

THE COURSE: 27 miles, run in five legs starting in Nashua at the Norman Crisp School and following the scenic Merrimack River through Nashua, Hudson, Tyngsboro, Lowell, Dracut, Methuen and finishing in Lawrence at the Claddagh Pub, 399 Canal St., Lawrence, MA.

LEG LENGTHS: 5.4, 4.75, 2.5, 9.5, and 4.75 Miles.
If you have a group of TriFury friends/training partners that you would like to assemble as a team yourselves that would be great. Or if you would like me to put you on a team, I will be making up several teams.  If you've already been recruited by your running club like MVS, GLRR, the Shamrocks, Winners Circle, the Mystics, Gate City, Sommerville Road Runners, Greater Derry, the Wicked Running Club or even the Goon Squad, don't worry, we won't feel bad.  In an event like this we understand that your running club probably comes first.   But if you're not on a team or not in another club, then we'd love to have you represent TriFury.
Please reply to me if you're interested in running on a TriFury relay team or are putting a TriFury team together yourselves (the entire team must be active 2014 TriFury members. EVERYONE, every TriFury member, every pace is welcome. Send your name, and your typical recent time for a 5K or 5 Miler. If you'd prefer a certain distance leg also say so. Also, if you're willing to be a team captain, please let me know, I NEED a few captains.
If you can't run and want to help out we definitely also have a big need a few people to help me direct runners from 9AM until 11:30 at Griffin Park in Methuen which is TriFury's responsibility with the help of Whirlaway Racing Team.    Each club has a particular duty to put on the race, this is ours.
I will make up teams over Thanksgiving weekend and let everyone know who their team captain and teamates are. We will have some competitive teams, and some just-having-fun teams this year. The cost is $15 for each person. If you cancel after we make up the teams, you will still owe the club $15.   You should plan on paying your team captain on race day.   No need to pay in advance.  Other than Try the Tri, this has to be the 2nd best value value in all of sports.
The absolute deadline to sign up with me for a TriFury team is 5PM Wednesday November 26th (the day before Thanksgiving). You do not need to be fast, but you do need to want to have some fun.
Be well, I hope you can join us.
Dave Tyler and Scott Casper (TriFury's Mill Cities Committee Reps)

The Missing Training Links: Why people workout but are still overweight, tired and sleep horribly?

Dr. Jeff Donatello is a charismatic, nationally recognized motivational speaker. He most recently gave this exact workshop at the National Metabolic Super Conference to 100 physicians at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. How many athletes really have yet to dial in their nutrition? What metabolic blocks are within you that cause you to continue to have those extra 5-20 lbs on you even though you run, bike or swim hundreds of miles a week? What are you doing wrong? The Donatello Method is a way to get healthy FIRST and get fit second. Dr. Donatello explores the key missing links to your metabolism and the testing involved in order to find out what you may be missing in your quest to be the best you can be.

 Dr. Donatello is also a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Certified Nutrition Specialist, a Chiropractic Physician and a 7 time All-American Triathlete. He is the Co-Founder of the Pumpkinman Triathlon in South Berwick, Maine.

"Whenever I have questions regarding nutrition and supplementation I always ask Dr. Jeff Donatello's advice.  He is extremely knowledge and always up to date with the latest information.  He is an excellent resource!" Ironman Champion Matt Russell
