The entries for the 2012 race keep trickling in as we near the end of February. Some interesting observations so far:
The 60k field of runners will be much larger than last year.
All of the course winners from last year will be returning to run again in 2012.
I have managed to nail down a suitable “rental” agreement between the race and the owner of the pneumatic potato launcher for the next 45 years (odd but that is what he wanted).
I will keep the new shirt color a secret until they come in.
Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Assoc has done some work to the trails adding about .7 miles to the mountain bike trail section
It has been a pretty mild winter so far making trail running for this time of year much more enjoyable than in years past.
People have been contacting me about the race at all hours of the day and night. No worries. I find it amusing so far.
