The Oct 5th Sandrat Trail Run will be a "fun run" this year.

From Steve and Marcia Riley: "There will be no official distance, so you can run as little or as much as you want.  There will be no t-shirts, no awards, no food, no pictures, no trail markings, no waivers to sign, and NO COST. You can still make a donation to The Ballard Center, so feel free to bring food items and/or money to donate. For more information.  We plan to do an official race again in 2015."

The Beast of Lecompton -
Congratulations to Dan Kuhlman for his 2nd place finish among the M60s at the Ed Anacker Bridger Ridge Run in Bozeman, MT, Aug 9. Dan was only 3 min. back of the winner, Bruce Maxwell, a Bozeman local. The Bridger Ridge Run "once was America's Most Rugged Trail Run." The run is 19.65 miles of brutal climbing and descending, complete with unstable footing, unpredictable weather, and miles of exposure along the ridge line of the Bridger Mountain range. results
