Please post here if you are not racing and can be available to assist with our annual trail run. Even if you are racing we can use help with the kids race and tear down after the adult race.

Race is Saturday, June 13th at 10:00 am.

Thanks, Brian

Unfortunately I will not be able to help out this weekend. We are headed out of town for the weekend.

If there is anything I can do before Friday to help, please let me know.

My brother is coming to visit and doing the race. Not sure if I will run with him or work it but I'll be there.

Will run the race, but will be there early for music, course prep, set-up, and will either lead the kids race or recruit someone that will.

PJ

I am available for anytime for help with Six in the Stix. Just let me know when to show up and where to be.

Also if there is any setup that can be done following Six in the Stix for the mtb race the next day, I can help with that.

I am racing the Pinnacle, but happy to help with cleanup afterwards too.

Dana - Prerace course check (others may join in of course). Head out around 8:00am.
Dana - On call at finish line during race to guide EMT into the woods if needed. Hope this is a boring job.

PJ - Setup. Show up after the trip to D&D.

Tim - Lower course marshall. Big Rock then exit of Snake Alley. 9:00 am is good unless you want to ride with Dana.

Aaron - Sweeper and change arrows over to bike race. 9:00 am is good unless you want to ride with Dana.

Brian - Marshall exit of Roots after starting race. Change Forest trail arrows for finish of race.

All available - Help with kids race and Pinnacle prep.

Missing - Still could use water station help. Will go with an un-manned self service station if needed.

Bring the cell phones, we will swap numbers race morning.

Not sure if you were planning on doing this or not Brian but the course could definately stand to be blown before the race. That wind we had the other night brought down a substantial amount of branches, mostly little stuff.

We moved some of the larger branches today on the run.

I'm game for blowing and can do it Thursday before race weekend.

Alright, now that I have gotten all the dumb potty humor out of the way, sorry Rockboy. I found out yesterday afternoon that Dr. Mike doesn't think Tosh is going to go full term. Instead, he believes that she will be a couple weeks early, which puts it right around The Pinnacle/Six in the Stix. So, I may be in the Hospital for the whole weekend. I'm hoping the baby holds off so I can get my ass kicked at The Pinnacle, but if not, I hope everyone has fun.

Rockboy may just go to the hospital and kick your ass if you can't make the Pinnacle.

I fully expect him to accomplish that on Stage 2 next Wednesday.

I am available to help both days. Just tell me when and where you'd like me to be. I'll charge up my camera batteries starting now! I ran last night--are the arrows for the run or the ride or both? Titanic and I were confused, but as most of you know, I do get a little turned around in the woods...we have our route down--I just let the beagle lead now and try not to fall down.

arrows are for the run, the ride is eerily similar. I have marshal duty for you on Sunday......maybe even with a radio. Grab Sandy, some bug spray, a camera and will see you Sunday.

Saturday looks to be well worked, so lace up your shoes and run it.

Okay--so Titanic & I went out last night and did the full course, plus a few added miles of confusion at the very end. The course was marked quite well except for the exit from the woods. I have never been on most of the trails I was on last night. At one point I was running along side the ferns and wondered if I had been transported to Jurassic Park! Good thing, as it made me pick up my pace a little bit. At any moment I thought I'd stumble upon the mtn. bike group that I knew was riding at the same time, but I never did until I saw Nathan Richer at his dad's when I got home. It was the longest trail run I've ever done--parts of it were difficult, but certainly doable for me. I actually finished much stronger than I thought I would. Some leg, knee pain, but not too bad. I have no idea how I'll do without my trusty beagle to pull me along, but I guess I'll give it a try. I'll see you there!

nicely done. It will be thoroughly marked for race day, so you won't have any trouble. Keep it steady and enjoy the beauty of the woods.

I'm a little late posting here - sorry. I'm available for anything and everything on Saturday. I would like to race Sunday (all these years, haven't yet) but I would be glad to marshal or whatever on Sunday as well.

To all those coming out to help Saturday, please drop me an e-mail with your cell # (if you will have a cell with you). I will make up cheat sheets with the numbers so we can contact each other during the race if needed.

send to brian@team-pinnacle.org

Thanks

Do they make running shoes with cleats in them for the mud that all of this rain is creating today? What fun!

We have been working for years to make this race loop as weather resistant as possible. You will be pleasantly suprised how firm things will be by tomorrow morning.

I was really just playing with you guys--I'm excited about tomorrow and plan to wear my regular trail shoes (which happen to be my older road shoes). Of course if you ask Dan, he reads that bare feet are best. I however, will not run around the woods in the poo and sticks with bare feet :lol:

No mud, no sticks, no leaves, and no poo!

Course will be mint!!! There are plenty of rocks and roots to stub your toes on thou, so I don't recommend bare feet, but to each their own.
