Don't forget that Highlander Bar is giving 15% off your entire bill if you take your race number in and show it in advance before the next race.

Are we having fun yet?

Check list........


Ok, we know it is hot and we need to hydrate...so enough said....do it.


If you are slower runner and you are doing the 15k, you will need a headlamp or a flashlight.  If you are a walker doing the 8k, you will need a headlamp or flashlight.  The last 2 miles will have some glow sticks to help light the way.


This course is entirely in the park on paved paths.  We will cross a street three times for the 8k and six times for the 15k.

We will have crossing guards, but you must be aware of the cars.  DO NOT ASSUME THAT ANY CAR WILL AUTOMATICALLY STOP.


Parking in the park.  The road near Pavilion 2 will be available for  parking.  But if you park there be prepared to stay later.  If you want to leave right after the race please park in the upper Bee Street closer to the Starcrest road.  We want to keep lower Bee parking for volunteers if possible.


There are not any soccer games or LIttle league games on that night.


Here is the course for the 8k.

Here is the course for the 15k.

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/104956292


The 8k and the 15k are the same course until Aid station #2.  The 15k people will take a short cut, both groups will met up again.  This loop is 4.96 miles so the 8k people will go to the finish and the 15k people will do another loop.  The second loop has several short cuts so that this second loop is 4.3 miles for a perfect 15k (9.3) distance.






Race number #2, is August 13th Saturday evening (full moon) at 730 at McAllister Park on paved trails and the road.

Packet pick up will be at Soler Sports at Stoneoak from 12-4.

Then it will close and move to McAllister Park and  reopen at Pavlion #2 from 5-7.  Read further down in this email for all of the particulars.

I Ching Gatos will be rolling out some tunes.

This series is shaping up to be a good addition to the races that you have to choose from that lead you to the San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon and Half Marathon.  If there is something that you would like to have added to the series or you have an idea for a new race let us know we will make it happen. We like anything that will enhance your running experience.

It's important that you think of your safety at this event.  If you are not having a great day, then slow down and walk to the finish.  It's early in the season so do not do anything to jeopardize your health.

Just before each event we will give you the details about where to get your packet and race information.  

Awards will be given out as stated and we will have some specials that will be ongoing with these awards, these are awards you can use.

Beer (growlers) jugs, that you will get a special price for filling these up on special days at unique locations.  It's the award that keeps on giving. Friend Scallywompus Event because that is where we will keep updating where and when to get discounts at special places.

Don't forget that volunteers are there to help you, so show your appreciation for them taking care of your needs.

Valero will have a team of volunteers at each area helping you have a great race.

beer







Enchanted Rock Vodka , a smooth grain vodka made in the heart of Texas. Every bottle is handcrafted to capture the essense of this unique landmark's spirit.

Special note.....ladies.....Enchanted Rock will be there to provide you with one Martini after your race.  So if you are not a beer drinker, now you get one martini. This is a late entry....so we are working out the details....but yes one martini per women runner.  I know that this caused some heartburn with some very aggresive male Vodka drinkers.  So we will attempt to remedy the proper dispersement of all alcohol to male and female participants.  Wow....don't ask me to say that again.  If enough Vodka shows up...guys can have one also.


Sincerely,


Bart Childers
