Got a few updates on NE Distance, including news on a coaching clinic that they’ll be putting on. But first, here’s a run down on the latest from director Nich Haber:

There is a ton of good stuff coming down the pipe for NE Distance this year.  Here are a few highlights:

  • Jim Spisak is named to Team USA for the World Half Marathon Championships in Cardiff Wales on March 26th.  We’re hosting a send-off party for him at Delsesto Middle School in Providence where he was the coach for XC this past fall on March 22nd
  • Jim is also racing at the World’s Best 10k in Puerto Rico next weekend
  • Ryan Widzgowski just won the USATF New England 800m Championship with a time of 1:56.15
  • We just won a $10,000 grant from the Saucony Run for Good Foundation
  • We’re definitely running the Woonsocket MS Track program again this year and will be helping Providence run a few meets for middle school kids in the spring
