    The New SMAC Newsletter is Here!
    November/December 2017 Issue

    Check out the latest issue of SMAC's full-color newsletter, The Sugarloaf Sun. It's a special SPOOKY edition this time, full of the usual great race stories, articles, profiles, information, and artwork by club members, but also featuring lots of Halloween-themed things and a SUN first: a scary short story. Please click here to read it in PDF format. Thanks to all who contributed!

    You can also read earlier issues on the Sun archive page here (and you can also access the Sun archive page via the little text hyperlink down in the lower right corner of this page). We would really love to have submissions from YOU for future issues; the rough deadline for the upcoming Jan 1, 2018 issue is December 22, though of course earlier is always better (to allow the editor time to do... well, whatever it is he does).

Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club, Inc., based in Western Massachusetts, serves Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties. We are happy to post information about events held within these three counties. Note that there is a $15 fee for listing of your race.
Contact David Martula to inquire about having your race posted on the SMAC site.

Note: We feel a professionally-maintained website is the best way to communicate efficiently and effectively with the local running community. We provide this specific service as part of our mission to support area running. Doing so, however, comes at a cost to the Club. As a result, we decided to charge a fee to partially offset this cost. We hope you will understand our position. If you would like to speak with someone about this policy, please contact: David Martula.
