LAST MINUTE REMINDERS / UPDATES: Race day is almost here. Please CLICK HERE for some last minute reminders.

WEATHER! The weekend weather forecast is calling very warm temperatures and clear skies on Saturday. While the hottest part of the day is typically after 2:00pm, it will warm up quickly on race morning! Here are a few suggestions for having a successful race: 1/ wear a hat and sunglasses…the sun is intense at altitude and can zap your energy before you know it; 2/ start out hydrated, carry a water bottle or bladder, and drink from it between aid stations; 3/ wear sunscreen…it’s no fun going …to sleep with a sunburn after a long race; 4/ put ice from the aid stations in your hat (refer to suggestion #1); 5/ back off your pace if you start feeling the heat…walking breaks are ok, especially at aid stations. And, like the sign at the entrance to our storage unit states: “Life is a Journey, Not a Race,” (except when it is a race…and crossing the Finish Line is a better option than calling an Uber) Be safe out there and don’t forget to look around!

**RUNNER UPDATE** A race update, containing an abundance of information, was sent out earlier today through our on-line registration platform, I’m Athlete. However, sometimes the email gets hung up in SPAM folders, seems formatted incorrectly or is bounced due to email addresses being entered incorrectly. With that, here is a downloadable/printable PDF of the information. Please be sure to read through the entire document as it provides important information at the events! CLICK HERE to download a PDF version of the update. You should find the answer to most questions on this document, so please be sure to take a look. Also, be on the lookout for one more reminder later in the week!
