GROC recently got a very generous donation from a local trail running group TrailsROC.
They promote trail running and are big advocates of the wonderful trails in our area. They also understand that trails need love and care and recognize the efforts of all the groups that help build and maintain those trails. http://www.trailsroc.org
Eric Eagan one of the founders of TrailsROC had reached out to GROC when they were running race at Dryer Road Park. I asked Eric why they donated money to GROC
"We host a race (Ready Set Glow) at Dryer Road park and we understand that park is maintained and built by GROC and all of our” races have a beneficiary and it made sense to give to the organization that built a park that supports one of our races.
There should be room for runners and riders on our trails and if we build them properly - Which GROC has shown it can do, we should be able to share.
So in essence, we have so much in common we should be advocating and working together because our goals and vision seem to line up."
I think Eric stated it perfectly “ we have so much in common we should be advocating and working together because our goals and vision seem to line up”
GROC has been the champion for opening local trails to mountain biking but our main mission is to see more inclusive trail policies for all user groups. Shared-use trails are not only the right thing to do but it is critical to have all the help and volunteers our trails can get to keep them in great shape for everyone. We all know trails are built primary with volunteers from many different trail organizations and without them the trails will deteriorate.
So thank you to TrailsROC for supporting like minded groups and volunteering on the trails !
