Hello Oregon MUTs

Hello Oregon Mountain/Ultra/Trail Runners (aka MUTs),

I have taken on the role of Mountain, Ultra, and Trail coordinator for USATF-Oregon. Big shoes to fill with the great work Richard has done in getting things rolling!

I have been a runner since my high school cross-country days in the mid 70s. In the last 20 years I have focused on trail and ultra running with a few mountain races thrown in. I still race the cross-country season, which incidentally started last Saturday with the first of the Stumptown Series. 

In addition to USATF, I am a member of the US Snowshoe Association (USSSA). It was through snowshoe racing that I met Richard. I am also an avid randonee ski racer with the US Ski Mountaineering Association (USSMA).

I am fortunate to live near Mt. Hood (30 miles from Timberline Lodge) and train a couple of times a week up on the mountain.

While the 2012 season is winding down, there are a number of exciting results that I will share here. Over the next couple of months I will be working with La Sportiva and other sponsors to organize the 2013 Oregon Mountain Running Series.

Please feel free to contact me with ideas, news etc. My contact information is available by clicking the my link under “About the Author” on the right sidebar.

Best to all,

Robert Yerex
