Unlike longtime member Stan Kosiewicz, the Atomic City Roadrunners’ running club doesn’t mind keeping count how long it’s been around.
The Atomic City Roadrunners, a local running club, will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. It officially kicks off its 40th season April 2.
The Roadrunners host the Pace Race, which is a weekly 1- or 3-mile race at various spots around Los Alamos County, held during daylight-savings-time hours.
The Pace Races are every Tuesday night and winners aren’t judged by who crosses the finish line first but who can most closely predict their actual finish time.
The club’s president – a title he’s not completely comfortable with even though he’s been the contact person for 10 years – is longtime member Ted Williams. Williams, who is one of the longest-tenured competitors in the club, said he still has a lot of fun even after all this time.
“We have people in their 80s doing this and we have little kids in strollers,” Williams said. “I never tire of it. I never get bored. I’m very enthusiastic about it and I hope to do this for a long time.”
The Roadrunners started their weekly events in 1974. The Pace Race was set for Tuesdays, which happened to be a convenient time for the most number of people.
