Ashland Run

The time has come once again for the annual Ashland Run. The course winds through downtown Ashland, up the hills and down around Lithia Park. It should not be missed. In year's past the run had an outrageous cover charge, however this year the run is FREE with prizes donated by Rogue Valley Runners and various other local proprietors

Full Belly 5k

Alright everbody, this race is for those full bellies that are still hungry. If your in need of a flat and fast 5k in Ashland(is that possible?) then you need to be down at SOU Raider Stadium Saturday May 19th at 8:30. Registration is ongoing at Rogue Valley Runners and will be available 7-8am on race day. This would be a great opportunity to help support the students at SOU while having a great time. Walkers and runners will be rewarded with cool sounds, good food and t-shirts while they last. Any questions give RVR a call 541-201-0014.

Zane Grey 50 Thoughts ( From Montrail Blog )

(Pictures: Josh with the essentials....IV and RC Cola, Ian contemplating what it all means and Hal Finishing)

1. Payson is hot.

2. Skunk odor can linger for weeks……even months.

3. Never eat a meal known as the “Quesadilla Explosion” the night before a race.

4. Hal Koerner CAN dance…..seriously.

5. “That’s what I am talking ‘bout” –Howdy-…..if you were there you understand.

The Zane Grey 50 lived up to its reputation as one of the toughest 50 milers as the extreme heat and rocky trails took a serious physical and mental toll on the 2007 field. Most of the runners I observed crossing the finish line appeared to be suffering from varying states of dehydration and delirium. In the end, Kyle managed to take first with friends Josh Brimhall and Hal Koerner rounding out the top three. Overall, the weekend was filled with good friends, both old and new, and many good times.
