Team Championship 5M

On a picture-perfect July morning, 71 Flyers ran their hearts out in the Club Team Championships. Many more turned out for the post-race picnic and team photo shoot. Congratulations to ALL the Flyers! 🎉

Rachel Duncan wowed the crowd with her gorgeous rendition of The National Anthem. 🇺🇸🎶

The race went off in two waves: Corrals AA-C, and Corrals D-L (and all the latecomers). Here are videos of the two starts (I apologize for not being able to capture everyone).
