2015 Banquet Qualifiers and E-Vite


Many of you have completed at least six of our Ashtabula Distance Runners Grand Prix races this year and earned a free dinner at our annual banquet Saturday, January 9, 2016 at St. John High School. The event will start at 6 p.m. To RSVP, please click HERE for the online Event Registration. You can also purchase guest tickets at this link.

Please see below for a list of banquet qualifiers if you are unsure of whether you completed enough races this year. 

As stated, your dinner is free, but if you wish to bring a guest that has not qualified, they are welcome at a cost of $13 per person to cover the dinner. This year we are requiring pre-payment for guests, and RSVP for qualifiers (online by evite is fine) and need to have payment, or confirmation in hand by January 2, 2016 to guarantee a spot at the dinner.

We hope you can join us for an evening of fun and fellowship. There will be awards for overall and age group winners. Checks for guests should be made out to Ashtabula Distance Runners. Again the deadline for confirmation of on line registration or by mail with guest is January 2, 2016. The dinner will also serve as the club’s annual business meeting and is open to members (paying full cost).

If you have any questions, please call Warren Dillaway at 440-812-5392

Bill Bodnar memorial bench fund

Dear ADR family,

billrunWe have thought long and hard about how to honor our friend, coach, mentor, cheerleader, father and brother-in-sport: Bill Bodnar. We’d like to announce our goal of raising funds for two memorial benches. One is to be placed at Point Park (final location to be determined but discussions with the city have tentative agreement that it will be up on the look out platform somewhere) and a second bench on the Greenway Trail. If you or someone you know would like to make a donation toward this memorial fund, please send to:


Ashtabula Distance Runners Club

P.O. Box 43

Ashtabula, Ohio


Checks should be made out to the “Ashtabula Distance Runners Club” Please indicate with your mailing that this is meant for the Bodnar Memorial (either in the check memo or include  a note, please). We also ask that you please include a return address. All donations are tax deductible and will receive a receipt.

If you have any questions regarding the memorial, please feel free to email “” or find us on Facebook .
