    Huh??? When did this happen? When is the marathon planned for? Is it road or is it trail?

    Of course, I had to see this 3 days after I moved. Grrrr….

    Rusty has been working on it for a couple of years now. It seems to be nearing fruition. The first race will be in Dec 2009, and it will be a road run.

    You haven’t moved that far. You can come back for it.

    Please consider having your next marathon on any day but Sunday. Would love to run it but will not run on Sunday 🙂

  6. georgeruns Says:

    Sorry Tiffany, Sunday is the only day we can get permits. The city will not close the streets on high traffic days.
