Race Week is Here! Wednesday Workout Cancelled for Preparation.

Happy June, LRCers! How did that happen?

This is a big week for LRC, the Rough and Tumble Trail Runs are THIS Saturday, June 6th! Thanks a million to everyone who has pre-registered and to those who are still planning to register between now and 7:45 am on Saturday morning. The weather is looking good (keep your fingers crossed though because we're not actually supposed to speak of such things), the race swag has arrived, and we've got some sweet prizes lined up for you folks thanks to Sea Level Sucks, RoadID, Wild Iris Mountain Sports, and the Lander Bake Shop!

Wednesday Workout
As it happens, we have our hands pretty well occupied with race preparations (and packing for Hawaii, WHAT!?) this week so we've decided to call off the Wednesday workout in order to have more time to dedicate to putting on as smooth of an event as possible for everyone coming out on Saturday.

We recommend flipping through past weeks' workouts for ideas to do on your own!

Rough and Tumble Trail Runs!
Registration is still open and you can register online until 11:59pm on Wednesday, June 3rd. After that, you can register on Saturday morning starting at 7am in Bruce's parking area.

There are only a couple of trucker hats left that will be available on race day, so register NOW if you want one. BUT you might also be interested to know that our stern "we warned you" part of ourselves have caved to the nicer, more understanding part and made the decision to offer hat orders on race day to folks who still want one for a small additional fee of $5 to help with shipping and the fact that we won't get another discount from the manufactuer on this one. There will be a sign up sheet at the registration table!

We could still use some additional volunteer hands on Saturday morning if you'll be around. So far, these are the folks that have so kindly offered to help us out on Saturday morning, THANK YOU! These events are simply not possible without volunteers.
  • Jenny Joyes, Ella Joyes, and baby Joyes 
  • Kassy Jarvis 
  • Jagoe Warren and girls 
  • Anne Even
We could still use more help on Saturday, so please let us know if you aren't planning to run and could lend a hand during registration, at an aid station, or at the finish line! Evan and I look funny when we run around like chickens with our heads cut off and I'm sure these lovely people aren't huge fans of taking on that form either, so please, have mercy :)

Other Events Coming Up
Finally, this will be our last post for a couple of weeks. We'll be off on a 10-day vacation starting Saturday night through the 16th, so after the Rough and Tumble, we won't see you again until the 18th! We'll aim to get race results, photos, etc. posted sooner than that, but as far as workouts and trail runs, please look to our archive of workouts and route ideas on the blog.

That's it for now folks. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for making LRC what it is, for your constant support (even if you just put up with our weekly emails), and for being enthusiastic, bad ass human beings who are willing to share your passion with the community.

We hope to see you Saturday morning, but if not, good luck at your other events or whatever you get up to and we'll see you again in a couple of weeks.


Amber and Evan
