Now I'm a Race Director, The Weaver Basin Trail 50k, 30k, 10k (Read 438 times)

    Well, I finally did it.  I've become a race director.  At the end of my block is an awesome trail system that I run on almost everyday.  There are over 40 miles of trail and dirt roads in our trail system but no big races besides a 10k on Thanksgiving Day.  The trails are just incredible.

    The local runners talked about having an event to let folks experience our great trails, so I finally said "I'm gonna make it happen".

     

    I decided to have three goals:

    1)Have fun

    2)Raise money for our High School athletics, which are getting all kinds of funding cuts.

    3)Bring people to our small town to help our local economy(20% unemployment) and show off our great trails.

     

    What I didn't expect was how supportive my friends in the Rotary Club and the Fire Department, and so many others would be, they are amazing.  It is going to be a great event, I just hope I can get people out to our remote part of California for it.
