Reverse Ring

Reverse Ring is almost here.  Held the last weekend of February, it is only open to the Fellowship of the Ring-folks who finished The Ring over Labor Day.   There are thirty participants to date; that number is sure to fluctuate as the time for the event draws closer.

There are four NEO Trail members returning for RevRing: Bob Kim Cam Slim.  It is entirely coincidental that one must have a one syllable name in order to complete The Ring from Neo Trail.

Oil Creek Trail Runs

Registration will open Saturday 3/23/2013 at noon Eastern / 11 AM Central where RunRace.net is located

Race date: Saturday Oct 5, 2013

Start times: 100 miler at 5 AM, 100K at 6 AM, 50K at 7 AM

Race website will be updated with the link to register by early to mid-March - see OilCreek100.org / oc100.org

Be prepared to type quickly - the 50K may sell out in 5 minutes or quicker this year, the 100K in about an hour, the 100 miler in about 3 or 4 weeks

Wild & tough 1860's oil boom era rules: NO REFUNDS, no transfers to another runner, no changing of distances, no deferring to a later year - if you sign up, train intelligently so you don't injure yourself and show up to stake your claim race morning.

NO DOGS / pets on race weekend - for the safety of the runners and the sanity of the aid station volunteers

Chip timing again this year, but webcast / splits may not be available race weekend (bonus if it is available)

Best of luck - "Strike Oil or Move On!"
