Marilyn Strawbridge

Marilyn Strawbridge

We pause to recognize the passing of one Indy Runners founding members, Marilyn Strawbridge. Marilyn was our first Membership Chair and an accomplished runner - winning the 1982 and 1983 Mini Marathons (check out the sweet Indy Runners singlet in her picture) and the 1982 RRCA 30k championships.

She is remembered as a kind and loving person and a tough competitor. She helped lay the groundwork of our Club and will be sorely missed. See her obituary.
