Note from
Phil Henry's wife, Ellen: " I wanted ya'll to know that Phil died Monday, the13th after an almost 4 year battle with Melanoma. He was at home, on hospice, for the last week. His last marathon was the Mardi Gras Marathon in New Orleans in  2017. He ran it slowly with our youngest son, a family friend's daughter who he had mentored in running marathons and a 70+ year old friend who was running his first marathon. It was a celebration."
We send our thoughts and prayers to Phil's family and friends. -posted 5/15/19

Want to know where you're ranked by marathon count, who's birthdays are coming up, ages our members finished the states, and all kinds of demographics? We have a feature to the club web site called Demographics. Click on Membership on the drop down menu. This is an ongoing project and we add functions to it occasionally. Play with it at your leisure.  Send us updates to your marathon count, states completed, location where you completed the states, etc. Updates to our database are done nearly daily. If you haven't done so, please send us a digital photo to add to the membership list.  It helps members recognize each other at the races.   .jpg works best. Membership list
