Less than two weeks from race day and things are getting busy here at race central. Lots of entries are coming in and the half-marathon field has some very strong contenders. Some final course clean-up is being done, flagging of the course will start this week, meeting with the conservation committees, etc!

We had a great turn-out last weekend for the test running of the course with twelve people checking it out on what was the wettest day we have seen all summer (of course). While the rock, roots and bridges were slick, and the clouds hid the views, it was a great time and people loved the course. Thanks for all that came!

Shirts have been ordered and while the first 50 have been gone for about a week, I did order a few extra that will be available for sale ($15) on race day for those who wish to purchase them. They are great looking technical shirts and while I wish everyone could have gotten one, it was a trade-off made to keep the quality of the shirts up while keeping race entry fees down for all.

Bring a friend! Don't forget we have a 5K course, the Blueberry Bumble. And volunteers are still needed! If your friend would have more fun being on course than waiting around at the finish line, please send an email to
