·         Chuck Bartlett is Club Northwest’s Team Manager and all athletes do need to go though him for the most up to date information on races, meets, events, etc  that our athletes want to participate in. It does not matter who your coach is. Your coach may be involved in the Club but only Chuck as our Team Manager can make the decision for you on events. Not only do our athletes need to have the best information, but so does Chuck. We will soon add a ‘Club Northwest Directory’ to our web site for a coaching resources page. With local people who coach runners and are willing to take on additional athletes. We will have all the contact information for you to get a hold of them. We will also have all of Chuck’s contact information on the same page.
