Boston Marathon Runners – last long run!

image by Joe Konz at Photo Potpourri.

We know plenty of you will be using Saturday, March 23th, to complete your last long training run on the Boston Marathon course. RaceMenu will be on the Boston Marathon course providing a water stop for all runners! We plan on getting our runs done early, and being out there for you from 10:30AM to 1:30PM.

Wanna hang with us? Let us know!

WHERE WE’LL BE: The Somerville Road Runners use a great spot at the 18.6 Mile/30K mark during the marathon as a cheer section & water stop for SRR members. We’ll be using the same spot in the middle grassy island along the carriage road on this training day!

The site is in the 1200 block of Commonwealth Avenue in Newton. Nearest major cross streets are Chestnut & Lowell; it is a few blocks before Newton City Hall.

We’ll have some music playing for ya so make sure to stop for a drink or just give us a wave. Comment below and let us know what we need out there besides water – any particular food/drink? What songs get you pumped up that we NEED to have on a playlist?

Super Sunday 5 RECON Run: Success!

Thanks to the more than 50 runners that came out to run the Super Sunday course this morning!

Missed it? We made a quick video recap. Have you met any of the crew from the Boston Brunch Runners yet? Don’t worry if you haven’t – you will next Sunday. They’ll be there in FULL FORCE!

COURSE UPDATE:
Due to construction, there is a slight course modification from the 2012 route. In the last half mile of the course, instead of turning RIGHT on Rogers Street, the race will continue straight on First Street and turn RIGHT onto Binney Street. (You’ll then still take a left onto 3rd and left onto Linskey to the finish).

Haven’t registered for the Super Sunday 5 yet? What are you waiting for?!

SEE YOU SOON!

Question? Answer! – Sharing Results to Facebook

share_sample_friday5k-300x190

Every once in a while, we get questions (whether via email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or at races) that we thought might be of interest to more than just that one person. Today was one of those mornings!

Question:
I just registered for a fall race and they had a new feature that I had never seen before. I think (if I read it correctly) you could link your splits for the race to your Facebook page, and then it would update for you as you ran. This was new to me. Ever hear of it? Any thought to having a feature where registrants could have their race results automatically tweeted or updated on Facebook? - Josh from Kingston, MA

Answer:
Neat, huh? We’ve totally heard of it! Check out Share. We developed a feature that allows race directors – whether or not they use RaceMenu for registration and/or timing – to let runners automatically have posts to Facebook when they cross the finish line!


The race director can pick a custom message  (i.e. “Josh just zoomed to the finish at the Blindfold 5K”), and the runner can pick whether to display the finish time or just show that they participated with the race logo posted to the runner’s Facebook wall! (We know that not every race is a goal race – but you still want credit for being there).

If you’re involved with a race that is interested in Share, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for the question, Josh!

Tune In: ‘Racing the Rez’ on WGBH

Tune in tonight to see a Boston area public TV broadcast of Racing the Rez on WGBH at 10pm. In October, Racing the Rez was awarded Best Documentary by the Arlington International Film Festival and Best Action/Sports Film by the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival. Check out the trailer here.


Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run, recently posted on his blog, “If it’s not the best running movie ever made, it’s damn sure in the fight.”

Here’s the plot summary: “In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools put it all on the line for Tribal pride, triumph over adversity and state championship glory. Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons will have a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.”

With the fall XC season coming to a close, there isn’t a better time for this to hit the small screen!

For more information, see the full press release below or connect with the Racing the Rez Facebook page.
You can also find your local broadcast schedule here.

November 1, 2012

Contact: Brian Truglio

(617) 620-1806, btruglio@yahoo.com

 For Immediate Release:

Local filmmaker’s award-winning documentary, Racing the Rez, airs on Public Television Stations across the country this November.

 Somerville, Massachusetts: Documentary filmmaker Brian Truglio’s first feature length documentary, Racing the Rez, is scheduled to air over 1,000 times this month on public television stations across the United States.  Truglio, a Somerville resident, produced, directed and shot the film himself in the rugged canyon lands of the Navajo and Hopi Reservations in Northern Arizona.

The film follows Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools that put it all on the line for Tribal pride, triumph over adversity and state championship glory. Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons will have a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.

After watching the film, Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run, recently posted on his blog, “If it’s not the best running movie ever made, it’s damn sure in the fight.”

The films distributor, American Public Television, is releasing Racing the Rez in November as part of Native American Heritage Month.  During November, there are 1034 scheduled telecasts in over 100 markets across 38 states.  In October, Racing the Rez was award Best Documentary by the Arlington International Film Festival and Best Action/Sports Film by the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival.

“For Native culture, running is much more than a sport,” commented Truglio. “It’s part of their creation stories and is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Whether distant or recent, every family’s lore contains legends of runners.”

A life-long runner and a cross-country standout at Watchung Hills Regional High School in New Jersey from 1986-90, Truglio understands the power of running to raise the human spirit in trying times. In 1989, he lost his close friend and cross-country teammate, Chris Drewry, after a tragic boating accident. This experience, which left his community in mourning, coupled with Truglio’s passion for running and Native culture led to the creation of Racing the Rez.

A co-production of Wolf Hill Films and Native American Public Telecommunications (NAPT), Racing the Rez focuses on five teens growing up on the Navajo and Hopi Reservations, offering a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life.  The film sheds light on the many challenges that these runners face living on a Reservation and how they come to terms with having to make cultural choices that most American youth will never encounter.

Tuba City cross-country runner Billy Orman stated that running is a way of escaping the screwed-up stuff that occurs on the Reservation. Collectively, the runners shared stories about the presence of alcohol, drug abuse, family deaths from overdosing, parental abandonment and living conditions among others.

“All of the boys in the film showed a tremendous amount of courage in the things that they shared with me,” Truglio added. “I think part of it is that they needed to share this stuff and wanted to.”

Set against the iconic landscape of the Southwest, Racing the Rez yields a powerful, intimate view of transformation and hope.

To watch the film’s trailer, visit www.nativetelecom.org/racing_the_rez. A broadcast schedule can be found on the film’s Facebook fan page facebook.com/RacingTheRez or by searching your local stations online schedule.  To find your local public tv station please visit www.pbs.org/stationfinder.
