What a year


As we enter into fall it is hard to believe we have spent a year in which some of us didn't race at all and those of us blessed to do a race likely didn't do more than a few.  It certainly wasn't the year we board members envisioned.  We had high hopes of a lot of member participation in numerous activities that unfortunately never happened. This is the time of the year when we start planning for next year.  We are  looking for new members to join the board and help guide our future. If you think you have something to add, please reach out to Scot Rajsich or another board member.  Past board members are also encouraged to volunteer.  Being a board member isn't hard and helps keep our sport vibrant in Northeastern Wisconsin.

Beanies are in!


This year's member only FREE item is a high quality embroidered running beanie. If you haven't received yours yet contact Scot Rajsich or Andy Bischoff as they have some in their possession. 

Otherwise, you can also get yours at the end of the season party. 

End of Season Party - IMPORTANT CHANGE

When we originally scheduled our end of season party for November 14th we were unaware that the 4th HOOAH Ruck March would be occurring on that same date.  Since many of our members participate in that event and are supports of that organization and cause we have made a change.  Unfortunately the change means that we  also need to change venues as Badger State Brewing couldn't make a new date work for us. Please mark your calendars for November 7th . The event will now take place at Graystone Ale House in DePere. Please update your calendar.

We want all of our members to walk away with a great gift.  We are actively seeking items from local businesses that would be useful to our members. If you own, work at, or have a relationship with someone that does please ask if they would be willing to donate to our club. Examples include, gift certificates, clothing, etc.

Team Store Opening October 1st!

We are planning to open up the GBMS  store again with some more great team items.  Some of the items being planned are as follows: 

Hooded sweatshirt, long sleeve t-shirt, short sleeve t-shirt, sweatpants, polo shirt, and other items.

Since some people missed the last store we are planning on bringing back items from the last store as well.  We are now planning to open the store three times per year on the following dates: February 1,  June 1, and October 1.  Want something specific for the next store? Let us know what you would like to see. 



12 Hours of Road America Recap 

The GBMS team finished 6th in the team competition with only 5 members, quite the accomplishment considering that Broken Spoke had 18 team members. If you haven't done this event you should consider it in 2021. Besides being an event that provides funds for myTEAM TRIUMPH, it is also both fun and challenging.

Congrats to Becky Brecklin  164 miles and 4th place female;  Curtis Czapanskiy 150 miles and 12th place Sprint; Tony Novak 150 miles, Addison Waege 120 miles, and  Scot Rajsich 108 miles. 

When there isn't a race or ride what do you do?  Create your own! 

From time trials to scenic long distance rides, GBMS members are staying in shape and making their own events.  

Fall 50 Runners STILL Needed!
