Powhatan Trail 5K on Saturday July 22

Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School and the beautiful, shaded Powhatan Creek Trail will be the site for the 3rd Powhatan Creek Trail 5K on Saturday, July 22nd.  Proceeds from the race will benefit the Colonial Road Runners, and be used to offset expenses associated with competing in USA Track and Field national championship events.

The one mile fun run/walk will start at 8:00 am, followed by the 5K run/walk at 8:30 am.  Both events will take place on the paved, mostly shaded Powhatan Creek Trail, and start and finish in the Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School parking lot.  Reception with refreshments and awards ceremony will follow the 5K in the school cafeteria.

The fun run is free (t-shirts can be purchased for $10), and early bird registration for the 5K is $25 (t-shirt included).  After July 14th and race day, the 5K is $30.  For more information or to register, go to colonialroadrunners.org or contact race director Greg Dawson at 757-817-2512 or chammalamadingdong@yahoo.com.

CRR Awards Scholarships

The Colonial Road Runners sponsor and direct the annual Queen's Lake 5K at New Quarter Park each year to raise money to award scholarships to local high school students in the running community. The race is run in memory of two late Virginia Peninsula Road Racing Hall of Fame members - Michael Mann and Tom Ray.

The CRR Board met on June 7 and awarded the $500 2016 scholarships to:

  •  Gaphne Glueck, who will attend East Carolina University and pursue a nursing degree;
  •  Abby Johnson, who will attend Longwood University and pursue a degree in speech therapy; and 
  • Curtis Ivanoff, who will attend Bethany College in Lindeborg, KS.
Abby and Gaphne with their scholarship checks.
Paul Pelletier, CRR secretary, presented checks to Gaphne and Abby on August 13 at Colonial Sports. Curtis moved from the area after high school graduation and received his via mail. We wish them continued success in their college careers, their running careers, and in life. 

The Scholarship Fund began in 1999. If you would like to donate to the fund, you can do so at the next Queen's Lake 5K or you can donate anytime by completing this form and sending in your donation to CRR.

CRR Grand Prix Awards



Awards: Grand Prix series open to all runners (Colonial Road Runners, Peninsula Track Club, etc.). Overall awards to top three men and women, and 1st Master (ages 40-and-over) man and woman. Overall awards include $100 merchandise gift certificates to 1st overall male and female, $75 to 2nd overall, $50 to 3rd overall, and $50 to 1st Master, male and female, courtesy of Colonial Sports.

Beautiful award plaques (full-color design) to all overall categories and to first and second place in the following age groups (men and women): 19-and-under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-and-over, and race walking. Merchandise gift certificates ($20 to age-group firsts and $10 to age-group seconds), courtesy of Colonial Sports.

Grand Prix T-shirts; ticket booklets ($30 overall, $20 age group firsts, $10 age group seconds) to Go-Karts Plus; certificates for one large pizza from Chanello's Pizza; certificates for food from Aromas (Williamsburg or Oyster Point locations); and certificate for a one-half-hour personal running coaching session, courtesy of Rick Platt and Run Fast Promotions, given to all award winners.

Awards determined by points accumulated in each race. Points in the overall category will go 10 deep in each race (10 for 1st, 9 for 2nd, etc.). Points in the Masters, age group and race walking categories will go 5-deep (5 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, etc.). Points will be totaled from each race in overall, Masters, age group and race walking categories, but there is no duplication of Grand Prix series awards.

A maximum of the 10 best races count in the point standings. Note that there were a total of 20 CRR Grand Prix races for 2015. Ties broken by CRR membership, head-to-head competition, fastest 5K times, and CRR race volunteer points, in that order. New for 2016, although points will be tallied for all runners and walkers throughout the year, all Grand Prix award winners must join or renew with the CRR sometime during the Grand Prix year.

Updated 2016 CRR Grand Prix point standings will be available on the CRR website, at each CRR race, and in the CRR newsletter. The Grand Prix awards for 2016 will given out at the annual CRR Awards Banquet, in late January, 2016.
