All is going well and has been named. The board is waiting for a budget to be presented for approval.

The Ring and Reverse Ring

Quatro Hubbard and Mike Bur are retiring from the notorious Orange loop. They will direct one last race, The Ring, taking place in September. Discussion on replacement RDs.

Backyard Ultra

The board is in agreement that this event aligns with our mission to promote trail running. Race directors for this event are still being discussed.
