2019 PEI ROADRUNNERS ANNUAL MEETING
The 41st annual PEI Roadrunners annual meeting and awards presentation were held on April 5, 2019 at Harmony House in Hunter River.
There were approximately 70 members and guests in attendance.
The President’s report highlighted the continued strong membership (about 240 members) of the Club, the importance and dedication of the many volunteers, the emergence of the Youth Running Series and the need for continued vigilance on safety. It was also noted the availability of insurance is likely to be an issue for all sports organizations in the near future and retention of members would be a focus of the Executive.
