Trek the Trace, August 9

Tuesdays, August 16, 23 and 30.
6pm - USM Gateway Pavilion on the Longleaf Trace
2 mile fun run for adults / Kids run
Prizes and awards
Main dish and drinks provided
Please bring a dish for potluck (deserts, salads, vegetables, etc)

We had a lot of fun at the Trek the Trace last night. For those unfamiliar, the trek the trace is a 2 mile predicted time race. You don’t have to be the fastest - just the closest to your predicted time.

Prizes were awarded to the closet and furthest from their predicted times.  Congratulations to Ken Dobson (-0:14) and Crystal Sticker.

It is also a fun social event and a time to catch up with running friends. We had 25 participates – a lot of new faces! We also got lucky with the weather. Sure it was hot but there was some cloud cover that provided some shade.

There will be 3 more of these events – same time / place – including a 1 mile kids run -

Tuesday’s in August at 6PM at the Long Leaf Trace gateway.

I would like to thank all of the pacers that helped out last night.  You guys make these events easy!

Sounds like a fun time! Are garmins allowed for pacing?

No watches, gps or tunes - pure running.
