The weather is looking great for the Granite Man race on Sunday. I'll be at the Pre-Classic in Eugene this afternoon and tomorrow, then driving down to Ashland tomorrow afternoon. I will be at Rogue Valley Runners during packet pickup for Sunday's race. If you have any questions about the series or want to check your USATF status, please stop by.

Granite Man Countdown

Just 5 days until the first race in this year's Oregon Mountain Running Series! You still have time to register online (until midnight on 5/30) for $25. Race day registration will be available for an additional $15, but why wait.

Weather is looking great with ehe rain clearing out by Thursday. By Sunday, it will be sunny and warm so prepare accordingly. I am nursing a hamstring strain and will not be racing but will be there to witness the race and festivities and try out my new digital camera. There will be an OMRS tent setup near the registration area, so please stop by. I'll be handing out raffle tickets and checking on USATF eligibility. Bring your USATF card if you have it. If not please go online to the USATF website and look yourself up, then print the page with your info and USATF #. This will make it a lot easier for me come race time.

The top placing male and female USATF eligible runners will win $100 each as well as certificates for La Sportiva shoes! There will also be a raffle for another shoe certificate. You will need to be there to win.
