Cheyenne Mountain 25/50K

Hey people, I want you to be the first to know about a new and exciting race coming to the Colorado Springs area this Spring. (Yes, just announced last week, so you truly are some of the first to be 'in the know'.)
Am I doing this? Heck, yea!

This will be the inaugural year for the race and it looks like by far the best one around!

Too early? I say, no! We've had rocking weather around here for the winter, so why not challenge yourself with a little distance race to help warm you up for the season? Having my big (55 mile) race the end of May, I have been looking for races to help me build up to it and this will be perfect. I was looking around and almost signed up for a local 50k and am so glad I didn't.

Here's why:
- a new, different and exciting trail to run
- I love Saturday races (which this one is)
- 2 25k-loops (not 4 12k-loops)
- Affordable!!!
- a freakin' hysterical announcer (expect a lot of "Boo-yah"s)
- May is just too busy for me. And a tad too late in the season (did I just say that?).
- A good-looking race shirt (yes, I am hoping to help with the design)

Not to mention, the race director promises well-stocked, awesome aid stations, volunteers will be well taken care of, pre and post race food will make everyone happy-and most important the trail will be fun, challenging, and rewarding! MORE INFORMATION HERE.

So, have I won you over yet? Join me on April 23rd-- you won't regret it!

p.s. If you want to pre-run the race course (a 25k loop), there is a group doing that on January 30th. Send an email to Andrea @ Epic Endurance and she can hook you up with the group. (I'll be in Miami.)
