Results: Race; #165 Summer Solstice, Thursday June 21st

We had a perfect night for a race, cool but dry.   Course was completely dry so very fast.   Thank you for Nick and Jen bringing the Rhubarb bars.   They were very good.

Attendance was very low.  I am sure it didn't help with the website being down.   

 

Race#163 Winter Solstice Dec 23rd at 9am

Well we had one of our best turnouts for the final race of the year, 20 runners.   We had a very cool but dry morning, perfect day to race.

We had seven grand slammers (ran all four races), Steve Cackley, E David Granum, Bill McCracken, Bob Mow, Del Scharffenberg, Mack Stilson, and David Walters.

I didn't check but Del believes Mack is the first runner to win all four races in one year.

#162 Autumn Equinox Friday Sept 22nd. Results

We had a perfect night for running and enjoyed watching the Swifts after the race.   The Lower Macleay trail was still under repair so we had to take the Holman Lane detour.   Thank-you for Jen bringing cookies and coffee cake

 

#161 MGP Summer Solstice June 20th 6:15pm Results Updated 6/24

Hi All

We had a wonderful night for a race.   Sunny and dry and not to warm.  Portland Parks had closed Lower Macleay trail and had fenced it off with a chain link fence so we took a detour.  I kept the course the same length, going up to Holman Lane to hit Wild Wood and then to keep the distance the same we did an out and back towards the Stone Hult.   Since we added an extra hill many thought this was a tougher course than normal.  It was nice to have the out and back on Wild Wood to see more of the runners.

#160 MGP Vernal Equinox March 20th at 6:15pm.

Well we had few runners turn out for what turned out to be a raining and muddy run with a few obstacles thrown in the way (multipile down trees.)   Here are the updated results.

Attendance has been down for these races.    Does anyone want to help with advertising/marketing the race?    Other than the summer race last year the number of runners on race day has been in the teens.

Next race is Tuesday June 20th. 

 

Race Results #159 Winter Solstice Saturday Dec 17th at 9am.

We had 13 racers today on a cold day.  The majority of the course was snow or ice covered.   It was very icy going up Lower Macleay trail and icy down Thurman.   Wildwood trail was perfect, hard packed snow the majority of the trail.  There were still a few down trees but they had cleaned up a few of the worst ones.

 

Race Results #158 Vernal Equinox Sept 22nd at 6pm

 We had a perfect night last night for the Mud Grand Prix.  The Swifts were out in force too, we were told twice as many birds as last year.  They were very fun to watch.

We only had 10 runners last night so hopefuly we will have better turn out for the Winter Solstice.   Please send in your times if you like.

Here are the results and invite a friend to the next race.

Race Results#156 Vernal Equinox 19March16 Updated 3/22

We had one of the first dry Saturdays of the year today for the Vernal Equinox run.   It was a very nice day for the MGP and the course had dried out nicely compared to previous weeks.   We had pretty sparse turnout for such a great day though, 14 runners at the regular start time.   I already have a few times sent in for those who raced early.

Next race is Tuesday June 21st at 6:15pm.   Tell all your friends we could use a few more runners out for the summer race.

 

 

Race Results #155 -Winter Solstice, Sunday Dec 20th at 9am

Someone pointed out today you can get to some undersiable websites if you search for the website on google.  I am not sure why and I will try to fix but if you type in www.mudgrandprix.net into your browser window it should take you to the website.
