Capturing the Spirit

There's a lot going on in Southern Oregon this week.  For starters, the 35th annual Pear Blossom Run returns.  Will there be more monokinis? Will Max King break 49 minutes?  Can RVR place 5 runners in the top ten, again? We'll have to wait and see but one thing we know for sure is that a record number of runners have signed up to race in the 5k and 10k this year, and that is perhaps the best record that can be broken.

Additionally, we are lucky to be sponsoring the premiere of the Hood to Coast documentary in Southern Oregon.  This weekend marks the start of the Ashland Independent Film Festival, and with that, two exclusive showings of the feature film documentary Hood to Coast.  Tickets to both shows are still available, so act now to get in on the fun and help fill the Ashland Armory.  You won't find another chance like this to gather with the running community for such a unique event. 

Lastly, and a little closer to home, we have opened registration for the 2011 Lithia Loop Trail Marathon.  No surprises here, the race is once again doubling as the 2011 USAT&F Trail Marathon Championship with $2500 in prize money. The entry fee stays the same as we continue to bring you one the best races for your dollar in the country.  Sign up now and commit to bring your best come November.

You guys are awesome - thanks for sponsoring Hood to Coast, and for generally being such a positive presence and driving force behind running in the Valley!

ditto what Shorty said - you all are awesome! and I always look forward to that generous coupon you put in the Pear packets - thanks! It's always fun seeing so many of the fast RVR'ers near the turnaround - makes those miles go by quickly for me as I'm busy scanning the leaders heading back . . . but no monokini's this year. I know a few guys who were disappointed. :)

Agreed all around: RVR IS awesome, and thanks so much from the AIFF for sponsoring the film!
