A New Era Awaits....

For 12 years, our club has been training and racing both near and far. When we first began competition as Peninsula Distance Club, we were a tiny group hoping to encourage each other toward individual dreams. More than a decade later, our numbers have grown, our results have continued to improve, but the same central themes prevail: Train for something, and be cool to those around you while doing it. After four awesome years named the Strava Track Club, we now return to our roots once more as PDC. We’ve got ambitious goals for the years ahead, and the work is going in to turn those dreams into reality.

We’ve been fortunate to have incredible support from our sponsors and community partners through the years. In 2019, we are thrilled to add On as our footwear partner. Our team has always been racing on the roads, track, and trails, but starting now, we’ll now have the chance to run on clouds! Find out more about their products at on-running.com.

A Very International National Championships Season

As spring turns to summer, championship racing is on the books.  This year, Strava TC is appearing in the national track and field championships of four different countries.

In late June, Maya Weigel ventured to Des Moines to run the USA Outdoor Championships for the first time.  Having already improved her personal best from 2017 by 31 seconds, she braved the heat and humidity to earn a solid 13th place and valuable learning experiences for future years.

The following week, Matt Leach ran in his first senior British Championships, and although running boldly early in the 5000m, he left room for 2019 motivation with a 15th place finish after lowering his personal best to 13:53 this season. He bounced back quickly with a win and a runner-up finishe at a British Athletics League meet the first weekend in July.

On July 14th, Tori Tsolis competed in her first Greek Championships as a dual citizen, and came away with the 1500m title in a well-timed stretch run for  4:18.1.  She heads to the Balkan Championships on July 21.

Natalie Tanner is prepping to represent Germany at the European Championships in the 10,000m, but also running the 5000m at their national championships on July 21 in Frankfurt.
