The Annual JSRC "Gala" will be held February 27. Registration now open. Mail-in application here. Limited to 200 guests. Details posted here. This is the running club party you don't want to miss.


Icebreaker Style:  This year's theme has two meanings... A Winter Gala at the end of February will most likely be on a cold weekend - when everyone is ready for an end to snow and ice. We are also encouraging our members to "break the ice" and meet other members and party guests.... get it?
