Good day, @pgxc-men! Our roster continues to solidify, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Long Branch Park in Liverpool on Sunday. We could still use two 40-49 runners to fill out the Masters team.
If your plans change and you can’t come before Saturday afternoon, tell me here—after that, text me at 607-275-9557. It’s imperative that I know who is coming so I can move runners between teams on race day as needed.
As previously noted, we will NOT be carpooling en masse like we normally do; if anyone needs a ride, @amalia has offered a seat as long as you’re fully vaccinated.
Here’s a link to Long Branch Park in Google Maps. Google claims a 69-minute drive, and please aim to arrive by at least 10 AM so you’ll have time to get your bib and check out the course with the group. Look for the FLRC tent and feather flags, and if you haven’t run with us before, just find me or stick with someone who has. We always gather on the starting line 5-10 minutes before the 11 AM gun time for our traditional (and increasingly inscrutable) cheer.
If you have one of our new High Noon jerseys, wear it. If you only have an old one, that’s fine. And if you don’t have a jersey at all, I have six men’s mediums that you could buy ($40) or borrow. Or just wear your own—there’s no uniform requirement. At some point, we’ll do another jersey order, but given how long it’s taking the women’s jerseys to come, that will just be something to do for next year.
After the race, we’ll cool down in groups as desired, after which there are snacks and awards—chocolate for the top three individuals in each age group, and beer for the winning team in each age group.
