2010 Clinton Lake Registration is Open

The registration for the 4th annual Clinton Lake 30-Mile Trail Run is now open! We have moved to 100% online registration. Hope that's OK with people--it really helps my job as race director. Keep an eye on this blog for race updates, but also check out the race web site for good basic information and the registration link (plus a tally of currently registered runners). In case you didn't already know, the race date and starting time is Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 7:30am. That means it is less than 177 days until the race begins. Register soon, it'll likely fill up before January 1.

Earlier this year (on this blog) I elaborated on various changes I proposed for the 2010 event. Most of those are already set to go, but I'm still working on a couple. Please note that there is no early start option this year. The entire group goes off at 7:30am (instead of 8am) and everyone must finish by 4:30pm (instead of 4pm). That essentially gives EVERYONE a full 9 hours and an earlier starting time.

Looks like we'll still have an Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam...with the new "original" McNaughton Park trail race taking the spot of Andy's race. Same course, new director. Farmdale will also be under new directorship, but will remain in the Grand Slam. And Hobo 50K will keep Larry as RD and continue in the Slam. Don't forget that this blog has web links to the Grand Slam and all four individual races on the left sidebar.

PS: If your name is Christine Crawford or Logan Martin, you are not allowed to register online for the race...you'll get a paper form/waiver to sign and your full entry is free. You are the current race champions! It's a nice race perk for the male and female winners. Who will get into the 2011 race for free? It could be you!

Chris,

I know you said that "if your name was Logan Martin your full entry if free". What if someone once said to me "you are not Logan Martin" does that count?

I know the answer and have already signed up and paid in full! See you in March!

All signed up here, too, looking forward to it! I'm already nervous! Oh, wait, maybe I'm just nervous about Farmdale.
