Race website is the same as last year: www.ncnr.org/nrt50k.html
The New River Trail 50k will continue to be a fast, flat, fair course all within the New River Trail State Park. Confirmed sponsors include: VA State Parks(Dept of Conservation and Recreation), Montrail, Nathan Products, Mud Mama Pottery, Patagonia, and Flowers Bakery. The event will be sanctioned by USATF. Additional sponsors will be announced as they confirm.
I like UltraSignUp.com as an alternative to active for this race because:
- Fees are lower to registrants
- We can get registration fees electronicly instead of snail mail (keeping more to our green mission)
- runners can see who else is running right away instead of having to wait weeks for us to be able to update the race website
- After runners register, you can "check out" your "competition" or "companions" depending on how you approach it!
Please pass this information to your running friends-or curious friends who might want to help out-as alway these races can not be done without the generosity of our volunteers!
I am honored to be planning for another fun day running along and in support of The New River!
