Berryman Trail Epic Update

The RD's from the Berryman Trail Epic were kind enough to post the information for the 2010 race on their website.  I was surprised that they already had the information up since the tour/race is not until October.  For those of you who don't know, the Berryman Trail Epic is a 50+ mile Mountain Bike tour on Saturday, and race on Sunday.  There are a couple of new things for 2010, the first of which is a two person team category, and the second is the "back to back" riding both the tour and the race for over a 100 miles of tough single track in just two days.  I know one person is contemplating the back to back, personally I think this year it would be too much for me to handle.
For details on the race please click the link above.
This looks to be a great race.  I know some of you have participated in the past but come on out and do it again, and for the first timers like myself, sure it's 50+ miles but at least you don't have to run it.

Berryman Trail Update

Here we go.  Registration for the first Berryman Cup race will open on January 1st 2010.  The Berryman Trail 50mile/Marathon will take place on Saturday May 15, 2010.  I've heard some buzz about people being interested, but the time is drawing near to register, and I wouldn't advise waiting to the last minute as this race only allows around 150 entrants.  So as they say "think long, think wrong".  The information will be posted on the SLUG website within the next two weeks.  Which is why I can't give any information regarding registration fees, and other minor details of that nature.  I will be running the 50, and invite all of you to come out and run it with me.  I don't plan on running it very fast my only goal is to beat my time from two years ago, roughly 12.5 hours.  It is a good way to spend a day.
I still need to find a good finishers award.  I had something really awesome in mind but as it turns out it would have been very expensive.  Don't worry though it will be cool.
Now lets get this ball rolling!
