Over the next 3 months as we move towards race day, we’ll keep you posted with updates along the way. I’m very pleased to announce we have 3 additional committee members for this year – Dennis Marchant, Julie Flynn and Bev McKenna. Dennis will be helping with a number of the planning, permits and operational tasks, Julie will be leading our Aid Station co-ordination and Bev will be leading our Banquet crew this year. Welcome Dennis, Julie & Bev!
With the flurry of the lottery behind us, this is the time of year when our key planning really starts to kick in to full gear. This includes permits, sponsors, insurance, training runs, banquet, runners and volunteer shirts, posters, aid stations, trail work parties and contacting all of our volunteers. We had some great feedback from last year’s runner & volunteer survey, so you’ll see a lot of the same things as last year with some tweaking along the way. For those of you who asked for the Knee Knacker elevation profile to be back on the runners’ shirts this year, it will be… and for all of you who waited patiently for the single porta-pottie last year, I have the company owner’s personal guarantee he will ensure we get all that we ordered this year.
I’ve already had questions about the ‘unofficial’ Wednesday night training runs, and it looks like these may be starting sooner than usual. As for the ‘official’ training runs, these will start the first weekend in May & you can check out the schedule here.
As always, please keep in touch & happy training,
