Upcoming Trail Runs
Thanks to all you runners who came out to Taylor Mountain and faced the heat and humidity.
At Taylor Mountain, there were three new course records set. Heather Enos ran the 5 mile in 45:18, Zach Gingerich and Jennifer Ford completed their 50K's in 4:38:00 and 5:38:10. Nice job runners!!
We had a large number of marathon and 50K runners, including many who were doing their first run of that distance. I talked to four runners who completed their first 50K. If that's not impressive enough, one of them only started running last September (to lose weight and get healthier). Another used to weigh 85 pounds more, and wouldn't have even been able to power walk the course! Look at them now! They are strong, amazing athletes. Congratulations to Troy Sykes, Tracey Czar as well as Kandice Bradley and Marie Chudnofsky (shown below).
Taylor Mt Trail Run on June 29th is sold out, but we've got plenty summer runs left!
The next event up is the always popular Grand Ridge Trail Run. The race is on Aug 3th and it's selling fast, so don't wait too long to register!
After that on Aug 10th we are organizing the Rock the Green 5k/10k as part of a fundraiser festival the Green River Coalition is organizing. That run is limited to 400 runners and will likely sell out as well.
