Saturday, March 27, 2010

Mark this date...Saturday, March 27, 2010 is the official date for the 4th annual Clinton Lake 30-Mile Trail Run! I just received confirmation from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. This year all of my paperwork was approved fairly quickly. Maybe it's due to us having a new governor who restored some funding to DNR sites? Or maybe it's my well-noted charm and attention to detail? Anyway, we are set to go! Even though we have early approval from DNR, I still don't plan on opening up registration until September or October (before the Farmdale Trail Run). Remember, we still have two races left in the 2009 Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam. Since the old McNaughton Park 50/100/150 mile races are gone, I imagine we'll have a slightly revised Slam for 2010. There will likely be a new McNaughton Park ultra in spring 2010 and I'd like to include them in the Slam. I'll keep you posted.

In case you forgot, I have several changes planned for next year's Clinton Lake ultra...as stated in my blog post from April 25, 2009.

Chris,

Good news regarding the Clinton Lake Trail. My Dad has received permission to mow the trail over the summer. So, it should be in pretty good shape all year round this year, instead of covered with poison ivy and stinger weed like last year. Just wanted to let you know in case you guys usually avoid it during the summer.

That is great news. Your dad called me about that--I'm looking forward to running it more often this summer. Too bad your father can't get rid of the flies and spiders too!
