Re: [tws-ringers] Trinity Race & Ring

   Possibly the obvious 10K would be the BAA one on June 23.  IIRC, that 
one even goes down Charles Street. I'm one of the interested parties, and 
I may be out of town that day, though.

   My alternative suggestion is to make up our own race.  After some map 
fiddling, I have found that it is 6.2 miles from 234 Broadway in Arlington 
to Old North (much of that route is Broadway in Arlington and Somerville, 
veering through Main Street in Charlestown and across the bridge on the 
new sidewalk). I'm sure people could come up with alternative routes.  If 
we had other people doing service ringing at the Advent the racers could 
start in time to ring the quarter at noon at ON.  We could stash beverages 
and maybe dry shirts under the stairs the day before.  

   The majority of Boston ringers seem to be walkers, not runners.  There 
is no reason we couldn't just declare that to be our project.
