SSRC April Board Meeting Minutes


Sunflower Striders Running Club Board Meeting
@Baker’s Dozen
Attending: Becky, Norma, Steve, Claire, Mark
March minutes approved.
Brad and Norma met with Topeka City Officials. City wants TTA back in city. City uses Lawrence source for barricades (more affordable). Talked about blocking 21st Street and starting race at Topeka West H.S. Also there is a new sports store opening on Wanamaker on north end; talk about starting race running west out 10th Street to Urish. City really wants race in Topeka. We are not interested in possibly starting the race at new sports store since Garry Gribble’s Running Sports does so much for us, so that’s off the table. During meeting with city it was discussed that 5Ks are being “killed” in Topeka due to police guidelines. It’s already tough getting people out to participate at races, so this isn’t helping.
Auburn is in favor of the finish line being moved to the fire station. It is a great weather break and there is great parking right across the street from the fire station which is much closer to the elementary school. There are parking restrictions on the side street next to the fire station – that needs to stay clear of cars in case of emergency. Finishing at the fire station puts the finish much closer to the school. Moving the finish closer to the school may eliminate the “out & back” section of the new course. Finish line will be on the side street next to fire station. Looking at altering route to finish slightly to try and avoid traffic from Auburn Road.
Talked about pre-race coffee and donuts at the start at Indian Hills Elementary. Do that instead of pre-race dinner night before. Didn’t have much luck with that last time we tried it. Since race has later start we thought having something on hand that morning would be better.
We talked about offering money to high school XC and track teams who run aid stations for TTA. It can be a fundraiser for their sports.
Need volunteers for Fiesta 5k on June 28.
Need volunteers for Auburn Fire 5k on June 14.
Mark talked to Nick Xidis about being our club IT guy. He looked at our site and said there are definitely some things that can be fixed up. He can fix and take care of the technical aspect of it but doesn’t have the time to do the information upkeep for the site. Becky volunteered to keep the site as up-to-date as she can until the club finds someone to do it long-term. It was suggested that we try to find a young person, maybe a high school or college student who is a runner and also into web design.
Club was pleased with the turnout for the Spring Fun Run and Picnic. The weather was a little crappy so there weren’t many people who ran, but there was still a great turn out for the picnic. About 80 people RSVP’d and we had at least 60 people attend. Food was great. Talked about Lakewood Park as a possible location for next year’s picnic location. Access to the Shunga Trail from that park.
Jill volunteered to host a run from her home in May or June. We ruled out May since a lot of folks may be busy with graduations and such. Narrowed dates down to June 8th or June 21 or 22.
Bike Across Kansas is coming up June 12th. Great way to support bikers and to group fundraise. Take drinks and snacks out there to sell to the bikers. Support the endurance community in Kansas. June 12th, 9am in North Topeka.
Next meeting will be May 18th. May 11th is Mother’s Day so we pushed back the meeting one week.
