Upcoming Trail Runs
Thank you everyone that came to the November 17 Grand Ridge Run, what an awesome day! The weather stayed dry and warm for a long time, which was totally unexpected at this time of the year. It did get cold towards the end and very rainy too, so kudos to all long distance racers for toughing it through. A special thank you goes to all the volunteers for braving the weather to ensure everyone had a safe and fun time.
The prelim results are available here. If you have any questions/comments on the results, please email . Photos from Steve Sanders will be available soon so stay tuned!

The 2012 Evergreen Trail Runs Season Finale's coming up on Oct 21rd Trail Run at Ft. Steilacoom Park in Lakewood Washington - Time goes by fast when you're having fun!
Distances offered include 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon and 50k. The course has little elevation and the trails are non-technical, making it a great race if you're trail running for the first time. Some of the fastest runners will be at this race to compete for the top 3 spots (see 2012 Evergreen Trail Runs Series Standings). The points are extremely close so expect a neck to neck race to the finish.
Talking about racing hard, Papa John's Pizza on 5700 100th Street Southwest in Tacoma is sponsoring the Oct 21st Ft. Steilacoom Trail Run. They'll be waiting at the finish line for you with fresh out of the oven pizzas topped with Roma Tomatoes, Green Pappers, Onions, Spicy Italian Sausage, Parmesan and more so race hard and come to the finish line hungry! The store is just 2 miles from the park, so don't forget to check them out next time you visit.
Because this is the finale, we'll be raffling a bunch of great prizes from our sponsors. A big heartfelt thank you goes to all of them for being great supporters of the running community here in Washington!
