Our final T&H race of the 2017-18 series was this past Saturday, 4/31/18. In all, we had 396 runners take part throughout the season. It’s a big growth considering that just 5 years ago we didn’t even break 100 runners. You can find the race results and final series standings on our website. Congrats to everyone who participated! It was a great season!
Congratulations to series winner Scott Slusher and our other prize winners Matt Hughes (2nd), Ruth Waller-Liddle (3rd), Leisha Craft (4th), Bill Hayes & Tracy Ziegler (tied 5th).
We also had over two dozen folks attend every TnH this season, either as runners or volunteers. We’ll announce those folks and the prize they receive in the next newsletter.
Every race we get tons of positive feedback and many thanks for putting them on. The truth is we couldn’t do it without help. Outside of our wonderful race-day member volunteers, many of our board members and volunteer race director, Nick Clark put in hours or work each month to ensure these races run smoothly. We’re fortunate to receive their service and commitment to the Fort Collins running community. Thank you for all you do!

Yesterday’s Tortoise & Hare race could be summed up in one word… COLD! With a sudden drop in temperature combined with a brisk wind there was an extra motivation to get running and warm up. Luckily no fingers or toes were lost. All in all, we’ve been pretty lucky so far this T&H season with good weather. Three years ago 5 of the 7 T&H races had single digit temps. Brrr…
Congrats to all 152 finishers! Results and series standings can be found here.
Registration is open for the 5th T&H of the season! With a late January T&H this means you only have a few weeks to get registered for the next race on February 4th. Don’t procrastinate! We’d rather you register now and not show up if plans change than wait until the last minute. Registration closes Feb. 3rd @ noon with no race day registration. Thanks for helping us keep these events running smooth and enjoyable for all.
We also have our volunteer slots open. Feel free to sign up for any of our 45 minute spots and help give back to your club. In doing so, all volunteers will be entered to win a $25 Altitude Running gift card. We couldn’t put on these races without you, so thank you!
It was our biggest T&H race EVER!!! Thanks to all the 203 participants and especially our wonderful volunteers. We are grateful to be able to put on these races for such a supportive and fun community. Race results have been posted and you can check the leaderboard to see where you stand. We hope to see you in a few short weeks on February 4th at Edora Park!
Results and photos for the 3rd T&H of the season are up! We had 135 finishers, with Scott Slusher leading the charge. Scott jumps to the top of the series standings with his win as he continues his comeback from injury. And of course, thank you to this month’s wonderful team of volunteers.
