Thank Yous

I am going to take this post to say thank you to our race sponsors and volunteers. I mentioned this at the beginning of each race, but it bears repeating again. Without our sponsors and volunteers this series would not possible nor would its success. For my self and on behalf of all the runners thank you for your time, energy, support, and products.

Race #4 Reminders

Remember the race starts at 6:00pm, registration opens at 5:00pm and youth run begins at 5:30pm. Don't forget a headlamp or flashlight. We will have Rusty Taco and adult beverages after the race. Every registered runner gets a taco and those of age get an adult beverage. Don't forget your ID. No ID no adult beverage.

We will be presenting awards as soon as possible after the race. With this being the last we will have a lot of swag to award also.

Psyched to see you Wednesday! It has been a lot of fun.

Race #3 Results

Results for race #3 are here. Times again this week were faster. The weather probably was an incentive for a fast finish.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out. We had major contributions from the Twin Cities Running Experiment (aka TCRE) and the Twin Cities Running Club.

In two weeks Rusty Taco will be back and there will be beer and pop in addition to Dyna Moo milk. Remember this race will be the final race of the series. Stick around for awards and the drawing for a lot of swag from our sponsors.

See you on the trails!

Reminder for race #3

With the sun setting earlier and earlier it would be a good idea to bring a headlamp or flashlight on Wednesday to help see the trails. Race this week starts at 6:30pm.

Note this"headlamp" is doable, but probably not comfortable.

See you Wednesday!
