Carpooling to the Spring Classic

The annual Spring Classic ½ Marathon in Strongsville will be held on Saturday, Apr. 5 in Strongsville, starting at 9 a.m. It’s put on by our friends on the Westside. From Solon, Strongsville is maybe a 35-40 minute drive. Some of you have run the Spring Classic or perhaps the Fall Classic (same course, same organizers) before. It’s a pretty flat, fast course and will be a great pre-taper race for Boston and a nice training opportunity for the Cleveland Marathon.

Many of us carpooled to the recent Youngstown half and had a great time. It was a nice opportunity to get to know other members better and after the race we went to breakfast/lunch at Bob Evans in Streetsboro. I’m thinking we can carpool to the Spring Classic. Are there any volunteers who’d like to drive? I’ve registered for the race and am about 80% sure I’ll run it so long as it aligns with my Mohican 100 training. I’ll know a week in advance and, if I do go, will be glad to take 3 others with me. If you’re interested in driving or carpooling with someone else, please let me know and I’ll pass the word onto the club. You can reach me at wchornsby at yahoo.

You can register for the Spring Classic by mail or through

I'd like to run the Spring Classic, but my training schedule call for me to stop racing at the end of March. That's a weak reason since I've been very loosely following the plan. More honestly, I'll pass because I am more dinged-up than I should be. Good luck.
