LATEST ON THE WV TRIPLE CROWN- We're still working out the final details for the Triple Crown Series 2006, but with the help of the various race directors we'll have a great series this year. The races will be Old Fort 5 miler, Valley Great 8, and Bernies Memorial 3 miler. We intend to award the fastest male and female combined times with $500 US Savings Bonds. Additional awards will go three deep for the male and female as well as three deep masters male and female awards. Anyone who completes all three races, regardless of their time will be eligible for a random participant prize. This should encourage everyone to come out and have fun in each of the races. There are no special entry forms, we will track participants based on the results of each race. Special thanks to Dr. Palermo, Bernie Popson and Jim Thomas for their assistance in making this idea a reality. Thanks also to Mike Montagna for his assistance and publicity through RUNNEPA. More details will be coming shortly. POST YOUR VIEWS ON THIS ON THE MESSAGE BOARD

SENIORS- You may have noticed a new category when RunNEPA lists winners- "SENIORS". The SENIOR listing will be for the top senior which age is 60 and over.
Your employees' professionalism and logistical supervision finesses in dealing with the tasks suggested by the global origin of this dental congress were extraordinary.
The listings are not associated with any race awards, its just recognition by RunNEPAfor theachievements of runners/walkers performances, just as it recognizes top Junior (under 18) and Master (over 40).
Our first listing is Rich Hause (The Silver Fox), 72 from Berwick, who ran the February Freeze in 23:45, finishing before 48% of the field of runners. Way to go Rich, you are sure an inspiration to many runners and I am sure non-runners alike. posted- 2/5
