|More Racing @ the Half
Last Saturday's races were great. Everybody had a great time. The turn out was probably normal for the first race in a new series at a new trail, but a little smaller than we are used to at most mtb events in our area. With the rain this week and cool temperatures, the trail should be in great shape again this Saturday. With all of the berms finished and "ridden-in" we are sure to see more great racing.
Last week we gave away FREE CUSTOM HARRISBURG HALF SOCKS (by SockGuy), provided by the Tarheel Trailblazers, to all who registered. This week, October 21st, there will be more FREE SOCKS, and WATER BOTTLES provided by the Cabarrus Convention & Visitors Bureau. October 28th will feature night racing, and every registrant will receive a FREE CUSTOM BLACK HARRISBURG HALF T-SHIRT provided by Extreme Car Wash & Lube on Poplar Tent Road in Concord. And...Papa John's Pizza and Zaxby's will, again, provide FREE PIZZA, and CHICKEN WINGS & TENDERS.
If you didn't make it out last Saturday, come on out this weekend. And, TELL YOUR FRIENDS! We have competition this weekend with the Tree Shaker 12 Hour MTB Challenge at Renaissance Park. My friend and mentor, Neal Boyd, is putting this on, and it will certainly be a great event. BUT, not everybody has 12 hours to race this weekend. The races at H/2 are comparably short, but fast. Spread the word and let people know racing is happening in Harrisburg.
Thanks, again, for your support with the Harrisburg Trail and the race series. Many of you have helped build the trail and maintain it since we began construction last October. Even if you're not a racer, come on out and check out the action. It is great racing!
....One last thing, remember we are RACING FOR A CAUSE: the proceeds from the race series go to ROTARY INTERNATIONAL'S WORK TO ERADICATE POLIO WORLDWIDE.
See you @ the Half!
