There is a mug given to all early entrants.  You can also purchase Trail Nerd / Mud Babe regalia, at the event.
Family participation is encouraged, and yes, that includes dogs, too.  Please register your dog (for $5).  This pays for the chip & bib.
Rules for Dogs as Pacers:
We are a dog-friendly bunch, within reason.  You can run with your (well-mannered) dog, but it must be on a leash, and you must not let it get entangled with another runner.  Your dog will be issued a bib number that needs to be attached (with your name and cell # written on it with a sharpie).  Your dog will be included in the official results, if you sign it in at the starting line.  There is no additional cost to you.  Please keep in mind that we won't allow any cruelty to animals, so you must attest to your dog's "trail conditioning."  If it appears that your dog is heat-stressed or otherwise physically stressed or injured, we will ask you to pull out of the race and seek out veterinary help. Please provide water and food for your dog.  You can refill your dog's water at the aid stations.

How was this race named?
After several cougar sightings, we had an impromptu contest to name the Wyco Cougar.  Bad Ben's son, Matt quickly came up with the winning name.  He can also do a great Dustin Hoffman impression, by the way.

Race Directors' Report
Billed originally as a 7-miler, we cut it short (to a 10K, out of deference to lung capacity vs. elevation gain, and the potential overfeeding of a big cat with the unhealthy free-radical-ridden flesh of mud-spattered trailrunners).  45 hearty souls showed up to run (a few with their dogs)...43 finished; I can only assume two were consumed by the hills, and eventually by the cougar.
Ben Coffman (of Whiteman AFB) ran a fast debut trail race, and won it in 41:40, followed by Rick Mayo and Chad Wooderson.  Way to go, guys.
Leeanne Reed won the designation "First Cougar," for not only clinching the overall female title, but doing it as a Masters runner.  Congrats, and welcome back to the trails, Leeanne!  Hannah "From Montana" Schultz took 2nd-place Female honors, followed closely by Kristi Mayo.
Kudos to all those that helped mark the course, setup, take down, help with registration & results, and generally, make this race happen.  And Larry, thanks for burying some whiners.
Happy trails,
Bad Ben
