2011 Race CANCELLED!

There was a death recently on snowmobile trails involving a snowmobile and a skier and therefore the Forest Service is having second thoughts and the local snowmobile clubs are against the idea. I feel like there are certainly ways to address the safety concerns of having a running race on the snowmobile trails but it seems like this year is not going to be the best time for the race. Perhaps with another year to work on the plans and build a better relationship with the clubs and the forest service we could do this race next year. Folks are certainly still welcome to run the route(any time they want) but I don't think I can involved to make sure to keep on the good side of the Forest Service in hopes that we can do this as a race in the future.

For those of you already signed up I will be putting full refund checks in the mail tomorrow for each of you. Sorry for the hassle and the inconvenience.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the accident. Though inevitable these types of things are always difficult and my condolences go out to those affected.

    That being said I agree that all the safety concerns could be addressed quite easily. One would think that with an influx of trail runners other trail users would have a heightened sense of caution during the race/run. This alone would go a long way to preventing any type of accident. The race looks fun and unique enough to pursue next year in my opinion.
