Our October 9 meet is the Checkers home meet, at Akron Falls Park, near Buffalo. I’m excited that this year the course will be completely different—same park, new course. Be sure to download the course map before you go, because it clarifies how to walk from the parking area (same parking area as previous years) to the race headquarters and start line (about a quarter mile).
As usual, only a few of us plan to make the trip to this race, but if you want to join the fun, just let me know and I’ll get you added to the roster.
Open (ages 20–39)
Nobody is a “Yes” at this time.
Masters (ages 40–49)

With Jessica coming, we have enough Masters women to make a team—wonderful!

WHEN & WHERE
Gun time is 11am, so I recommend arriving a little before 10am. Adam and I will send carpool information later this week. We expect that only 1-2 cars will carpool from the B Lot, so if you know you need a ride (or that you want to drive), watch for that forum post and reply to it so we can make a good plan.
The race is at Akron Falls State Park, 44 Parkview Dr, Akron, NY 14001 (Google map pin).
IF IT IS COLD
It is okay to race in gloves, arm warmers, hats, tights, etc. You can also wear your jersey over a shirt.
Most of you, maybe all of you, coming to this race have a jersey that you can bring to wear while racing. I will also bring the box of extra jerseys.
See you on the run, Tonya
