Hey Lizards - our very own race is rapidly aproaching. Only about a month until the Red Lizard Five Miler! And we need some help making this event happen.

Option 1: Race it. TRL members get a $5 discount on their registration, so if you feel like running, it's only $15 - see http://www.redlizard...showtopic=17273 for details. Tech shirts are available if you pre-order by Feb 10.

Option 2: Volunteer. We have lot of needs for folks to help out before, during and after the event. Below is a list of things we need people to help out with (numbers in parenthesis are how many people we need for each task). Post in this thread or email torrey@redlizardrunning.com, and I'll add your name to the task.

Option 3: Both! There are enough things taking place the day before the race, plus before and after the gun goes off that you really could volunteer and run the race.

Don't forget to order your sweatshirt. If we place the order in time we might have them at the five miler.

I can volunteer on an aid station or early morning set-up. Whichever you need. 


I also can take photos, but I do not have a professional camera, however, my cannon did a great job at the Clark County
