Something different after the Open comes our way. I wanted to do something fun that got people out of the gym and presented a different challenge to train for. I’m putting on the High Desert Half Marathon/10k and 5k, a trail race taking place on A Mountain, April 21st and 22nd.
All of the races have an ascent or multiple ascents up the mountain as well as some portions that are great for running. All skill levels will be able to complete any distance, the trails aren’t too technical. There is also a King/Queen of the Hill portion. Whoever completes both the Half Marathon on Saturday and the 10k on Sunday the fastest wins King of the Hill and Queen of the Hill. Each winner will receive $1,000.
It would be great to get as many people involved as possible so feel free to let all your friends and family know about the event. We will also need volunteers to help come race time, so if you aren’t big into running but would still like to be a part of it becoming a volunteer would really be appreciated.
