After Race Cookout: There will be an after race cookout held at Matt Albert’s house at the corner of Springside Ave and Pine St after the race tomorrow (8/18).  Matt will have some foods to grill, but still bring something to share. BYOB.

Race Tip of the Week: The weather for this week is looking to be extremely hot and humid, so this week’s race tip is hydration. Ensure that you drink more than the usual amount of liquids before the race as the temperature is going to be soaring in the upper 80s to low 90s!

Adult Race Course:  We’re back to the full length race course this week with some minor twists.  We will be going through some of the trails this week in a direction that we haven’t done before in the past.  We’ll also be learning from the Criterium last week and add two areas for spectators to watch the race (from the baseball field).  Also note, the Start/Finish line has moved to where the finish was for the Criterium, or for last year’s participants, the location of last year’s start/finish.
