The SRCCF was honored to present the 2016 SRC Marathon. Although our participant roster was smaller than in years past, the event was incident-free and once again received rave reviews from the runners, volunteers and spectators. Our goal was to ensure that the event continued in spite of losing its founding sponsor. Not only did we accomplish that, the event, under the direction of Race Director Matt Skelly and SRCCF President, Pamela Beckett, was profitable, and enabled the SRCCF to make contributions and stipend payments of $3000 throughout the community.
We are pleased to announce that a new event management corporation, Run Starved Rock Country, has been created. The new company, led by President Robb Hasty, Secretary Tracy Justice, and Treasurer Amy Hasty, will manage the SRC Marathon in the future, and has plans to create several additional runs and special events. We are grateful to Run Starved Rock Country for taking the lead to enhance the SRC Marathon experience, while showcasing our beautiful natural resources and welcoming community.
