From Lloyd Schmidt, Race Director
Already, 2019 has been a truly great year. It looks like a lot of hard work and commitment is showing in the performances this year, with so many PB’s and EB’s.
Lately I’ve been hearing lots of excitement about the track race, the great competition, and the event in general. And don’t those singlets look great?
By now I am seeing more socializing and the new participants already feel like old ones. Volunteers have been excellent, as always. Everyone is well fed, and yet hungry at the same time.
We shattered records for signups and total runners this year, and whether you ran 12.9k or are wearing gold, your participation and performance are valuable.
But despite the numbers, but won’t get as many Ultimates to the finish line as we had hoped. As we open registration for 2020, we welcome you to take the plunge twelve months out. Our time-tested advice: early commitment plus a full year of training blocks is the best recipe for getting you to the finish line, tired, but healthy. You will have the most supportive group to motivate your training. We believe in this formula and have a $100 earlybird promo to incentivize it. Join our facebook group or ask someone who is for the code. Until midnight on September 1.
