11th Annual

A Mullins / Holmes / Tieghi Production

 

Come out ready for some fun!  In 2016, we had a scavenger-hunt theme. 

 

This year, something similar, but at the minimum it will involve running AND thinking, with a post event BYO lunch party. 

Distance: 10-kilometers total. 

Post run Soft Drinks and Beer provided. 

 

Are you up for a challenge???  

 

All participants have a choice between a shirt or a hat at the event.  Mile 90 photos will be prepaid for.  Beer and soft drinks provided.

 

The course:

Two 2.1K loops, followed by a 4.2K loop.  Prior to each loop there will be a CHALLENGE!

 

This year, 3 different challenges.  You will sign up for one of the 3 challenges, and do that same challenge prior to each loop.

 

1)  PHYSICAL CHALLENGE:

Prior to each loop, you will do 15 standard pushups followed by 15 crunches.

 

2) MENTAL CHALLENGE:

Prior to each loop, you will find 6 words in a word-find puzzle.  We may throw in another similar challenge.  :-)

 

3) LIBATIOUS CHALLENGE: 

Prior to each loop, you will drink a 12-ounce beer of your choice (provided by us and if you are over 21 y.o.). We have 4 different beers to choose from.

 

So which challenge will you choose???

 

THE LAST 4.2K LOOP:

On this loop, you will look for the obvious and not-so-obvious black buckets, and take one item out of each bucket.  (You may want to carry a bag with you).  The persons that have the most scavenger-hunt different items will be the overall winners.

Maximum time limit: 2 hours.

2009 Event
 
We had a nice little run, this Sunday.  Everybody seemed to have a good time.  Nobody got lost, but they did all get their feet wet. 
 
There were donuts.  There was coffee.  There were free Mizuno socks given to every finisher, by Sophia Wharton (except for the K-9 competitors...sniff...woof).
 
No records were broken, but neither were any bones.
 
Thanks to Brad Bishop and Travis Kierre, for marking the course with me on Saturday.  Thanks to Dallas Henry and Asher Kyger for helping out here and there, and for keeping the runners going in the right direction.  And thanks to my girlfriend Sophia for helping me de-mark the course and for doing results and a lot of etceteras.
 
Happy trails,
Bad Ben
 
PS: Thanks to our generous entrants, we raised $50 extra for ERTA, in addition to the race's donation.

This was the first-ever off-pavement trail running event at Kill Creek Park. It was a low-key FUN trail run. The Kill Creek Trail system is fairly technical, and has roots, rocks and two stream crossings on this course.  It's a beautiful park...you need to check it out, if you haven't been there before.

We raised $214 for ERTA for trail maintenance.  Thank you.

To the folks that showed up, we gave away some nice running-related stuff from Garry Gribble's Running Sports, and a pair of shoes from Vasque.

Many thanks to the volunteers, and to Shane Jones for helping me mark the course the night before. I've never known a guy that could keep a cigar lit while running on the "Eddy Trail" with his hands full.

Happy trails,
Bad Ben

This was a low-key trail event, like our last one.
