    Pease send me reminder info regarding these races fr next year. Thanks

    Raptor Ridge today was as good as it gets. The recent rain firmed up the trail and the temperatures were perfect (of course, compared to the temperatures at Stairway, anything would have been perfect). The view from the top of the Ridge, with the valley below shrouded in fog, was really something. The only criticism I have is the distance today was 13.1 on the button. What’s up with that? DD races are NEVER the distance stated. :-) Seriously, great job by you and your staff.

      I know….I decided to get crazy and make it exactly 13.1!! Glad you enjoyed it Jim and thank you for supporting Dirt Devil Racing!

  3. Marcy says:

    Hey Dr.,
    Just checking back in…back in December I expressed my super-excited readiness to jump onto the list of trail runners in the Grand Slam Series in 2013. As you suggested, I have kept checking the website for registration info…can you point me in the right direction (I still can’t find the right area to sign up).

  8. monica Proscelle says:

    Was wondering if it is too late to sign up for the Foxy half marathon at lake hodges?

  9. Joshua Garrett says:

    I was just wondering when you will post the race schedule for 2014. I’m just trying to decide on what to run during the spring of next year.
