Clinton Lake Race 30% Full

Just a quick update telling you that the Clinton Lake 30-Mile Trail Run now has 37 registrants. The maximum is 125 so we are 30% full after just one week of open registration! At this rate, we'll be full before you can say "Happy Halloween!" Time may be running short...I know the race date isn't until March 27, 2010...but if you want to get in on the fun, you should register fairly soon. I'm confident the race will close before January 1. The race will be listed in the next issue of Ultra Running as well as Trail Runner magazine. Get in before the word really gets out. I'm the race director and fairly biased in favor of this event, but it really is a nice, small, trail ultra that gives a lot back to the runners for a small fee (same fee as when the race started 4 years ago--no inflation here!). We charge $45 and runners get a race shirt, finisher medal, running socks, rain poncho, and a 6-month (3 issue) subscription to Marathon & Beyond. Plus quite a few random prize give-aways. Not to mention the great home-town, Midwestern hospitality! What are you waiting's time to register.

Don't forget, if you miss the Clinton Lake race, you'll have no chance to do the Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam. Don't be left out of the Slam!
