Rad Run 2013

Greetings Rad Runners :-)  June 8th is just around the corner - are you ready for more fun? 
Last year we had a beautiful day, a little warm but the trails are shaded much of the time and the water at the end helped to cool the runners off... thanks to the Tracy Fire crew!  This year there will be a different surprise ending but I promise you will be cooled off! 
There were 191 registered participants with about 170 - 180 that actually ran!  We had 6 waves of people with each wave beginning every 15 minutes.  It went quick this way and this year we plan on more participants but will have only about 10 min between the waves to help move it along.  There were 5 fun trophies we gave out last year:  farthest traveled (Andersons from TN), most enthusiastic - Jay B, best dressed - Krista N, oldest - Ed H, and youngest Sophie B.  Eveyone got a great finisher shirt...it's all about the shirt I have learned :-) and had a blast.  The only thing I heard the most from the runners was...more mud...well I will do my best!
We have an exciting year planned this year with a little more for the friends and families of our runners as well - food tent, face painting, games and possibly a dunk tank!  Hmmm...whom shall we dunk....any takers?
Time to go and sign up - go to registration on this site and download the forms and mail it in or call the YMCA at 507-532-9622 and get registered TODAY!  $35 gets you a goody bag, great dri-fit event shirt, food, fun and of course MUD!
See you in June!
