We are an amiable group of adults who regularly run together for our own amusement and, quite often, amazement. With over 300 runners, we provide a host of opportunities for members of all ages and abilities to indulge their running passion, whether it's on roads, trails, cross-country and even the track, including: Monthly fun runs - followed by Club meetings (with breakfast) that squeeze a surprising amount of fun out of keeping us solvent, legal and healthy Group runs - organized on roads & trails by our members a (and sometimes on the calendar). Non-GFRC members who are interested in joining a group run, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information Grand Prix Race Series - 1-3 race options are offered monthly during the 12-month long series held every year. Many races are on the road, though we mix it up with some relay, trail/cross-country and track races. Points are earned and awards are won. The series is designed for both competitive and social runners Track sessions (with coaching) for the overachievers amongst us And we don't keep all the fun to ourselves: as pioneers of one of the country's first and best running club 'Give Back Programs', we make a major contribution to the local running community and our members' favorite charities by organizing or supporting: Framingham's Summer Track series - open to the public and run by GFRC members Busa Bushwhack Trail Race - honoring our own senior statesman of New England trail running, Rich Busa, we organize this annual race, which is part of the Western Massachusetts Grand Tree Series Boston Marathon - we staff all the clock watching volunteer positions along the route (and haven't lost a clock to date) JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge (Boston) - we volunteer at the finish line Mural Mile Race - Annual race in downtown Framingham If all that's not enough, membership in the Club brings a monthly newsletter (without personals), a group email list, the opportunity to run yourself ragged in various New England relay races, an Annual Awards Banquet, Boston Marathon group training runs with Team Framingham, a pre-Boston Marathon pasta party and monthly social nights.
