Just trying to get the word our about this event. Our department is sponsoring a new Public Safety Division Relay with up to 20 people per team (just 5 miles each). We have been involved with this the last few years and really had a lot of fun (helping to run the event, not running in the event, at least not yet!) and we are looking to grow the event. For more information go to: http://www.virgilcrestultras.com/ We already have one team and would like to get more.
Virgil Crest Ultras are 50 and 100 mile ultramarathons located in Virgil, N.Y.. The event uses The Finger Lakes Trail sections spanning the Tuller Hill and Kennedy State Forests, paired with the mountainous terrain of Greek Peak Mountain Resort.
This year's races will begin at 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 25, 2010, and will include a 50-mile race, a 100-mile race, and a 100-mile relay. Entry will open on February 4th, 2010, and be limited to the first 150 qualified entrants in both of the solo events. The 100 Mile Relay will be open to only the first 30 teams. This is a not for profit venture.
P.S. If anyone has any other suggestions of free places to get the word out let me know please.
