Well December is upon us & so that means the Solstice approaches!! December 21 is coming up quick! Hope your training has been going well & you are ready to rumble on the shortest day of 2011. I ran the loop around the lake yesterday & am happy to report that the ground is softish from all the rain but not completely wrecked. I will keep you posted as the date approaches.
I have had some inquiries about an early start to the full and we are considering it, but I would like your input. If you would prefer an early start please email me & let me know so I have an idea of the number - Angela - email@example.com
I also would just like to take the opportunity to remind you that if you are planning to run this you need to let me know & you need to remember that this is a super low key event. We have an aid station once every 10km (that's where the loop begins or ends or.. well, it meets up with the picnic table) Anyhoo - you should bring your own hydration pack - it can be filled @ the aid station but if you need more along the way, it is your responsibility. We will have a few things to munch @ the aid station & there is a washroom too!
Also - this is a public park with an open trail so you will be sharing the trail with walkers & other runners & dogs & maybe even some bikers - just sayin'. It is a groomed trail - stroller friendly with roots & rocks, but not completely flat & one pretty substantial incline that you do twice.
We will hopefully have a few gifties & there will be some super yummy chili & treats @ the finish & maybe I can scratch together a couple of sponsors - you never know
So there ya go - as the rocks in the lake say - peace, cherish...
looking forward to the 21st - see all you fullers & 1/2ers & anyone else -
$5 suggested donation plus some canned goods - 9am start - 8:30 registration - oh brother - what AM I forgetting? Medals - oh yeah we got em!
This is the Coast Inn info - they are not a sponsor but a nice hotel - some one requested the info - if you need a place to stay. There are also a lot of motels on the old island highway & a nice guesthouse right downtown - http://www.paintedturtle.ca/
