Summer Newsletter: Taking Pride in our Club

Message from the President, Rick Albright:

Taking Pride in our Club

It seems at least once every month, our team manager or one of our board members is contacted by serious runners coming to the Pacific NW who want to connect with CNW.  Some have seen us in our iconic orange singlets at regional or national competitions and been impressed by the competitiveness and camaraderie of our athletes.  Or they’ve heard good things from colleagues about the athletes in orange, or sometimes they simply look online and decide CNW is the club for them.  While I’m proud our Club caters to and supports all levels of athletes in the running/track & field community, I am also very proud that our Club has a reputation at the regional and national level for being competitive and supportive of its elite athletes. 

Winter Newsletter: Happy New Year!

Message from the President, Rick Albright

Happy New Year to all our Club Northwest members and your loved ones!  The start of the year is the perfect time to look back at the past year, at the many challenges and highlights, and to express our gratitude to those who have brought us to this point.  Highlights in 2016 included another successful Resolution Run, one of our best All-Comers Track & Field Series, the large number of Club athletes who qualified to participate in the US Olympic Trials, another successful cross country season, and an amazing fund raising campaign last summer.  Challenges included having to stop publication of Northwest Runner, overcoming financial difficulties, and cancelling the 2016 Firecracker 5000.  However, with your support, we were able to overcome these challenges and head into 2017 on much better financial footing than we've seen in a couple of years.  Much of this stems from the generosity of those who donated money and volunteer time to the Club, and to our corporate partners and sponsors.  Thank you all so very much!
