Only 2 weeks until the next race in the 2017 Summer Series.  And this one's a doozy.  A half marathon on the trails that does a *wee* bit of climbing :)  But it is a gorgeous course with some great views of the Gorge, and is easily one of my favorite races out there.

 

The race starts at 9am in White Salmon.  So plenty of time to wake up and drive out to the Gorge before the start.  And no trip to White Salmon would be complete without a post-race lunch at Everbody's Brewing.

 

If you feel like carpooling, meet at the Mall 205 McMenamins at 7:15.  It's about an hour drive to White Salmon from there, so that will save some fuel, and toll money to cross the Bridge of the Gods both ways.  That should get us there by 8:15, which is enough time to get your bib, warm up a bit, use the bathroom, and prepare for some fun in the hills.  I imagine that with a lunch stop, we should be back to the carpool location around 2pm.

 

If you haven't already registered, get yourself signed up now.  This is going to be a fun-filled day you won't want to miss out on.

Any idea if the course is the same direction as last year?

I've been looking forward to this race all year long, but I'm sidelined at the moment and will have to sit this one out.  Good luck, everyone!

I haven't seen details that state one way or the other.  I imagine they will probably run it "backward" again, same as last year.

Bummer, Ben :(  I was figuring you were probably fit for some hill racing this year.

 

Hopefully you will be back to healthy running in no time.  Probably a good choice to sit this one out, as it won't be an easy race on a body that isn't functioning properly.

I just checked the web site and it says the course will be CCW, which is the same direction as last year.

 

But in good news, it looks like perfect running weather for the Gorge tomorrow.  Not too hot, and just a few clouds in the sky, so the views from the top should be lovely.

Don't forget that there will be a carpool leaving from the McMenamins at Mall 205.  Meet there at 7:15.

Yeah, bummer indeed.  I look forward to sandbagging for some of the late-series races and Strava segment.  Good luck in White Salmon!

It was a beautiful day for a race in the Gorge.  Some solid performances, and fun was had by all.

 

Results are posted.

I will try to sort through Lizards and then post them up to see if I missed anyone.

Is Mike Minnick still a member?

 

And I think Vivian Tang joined recently.

Does this make it the "Backward Backyard Half"? :wink:

Good catch, Joe.  Yes, I saw Mike there and he is still a member.  I will get him added in. 

 

I checked the membership database, and didn't find Vivian in it.  But I will verify with Lou that he hasn't seen anything from her.

Oh, okay. Maybe she's still just "lurking" :ph34r: :wink:
