Team HillRunner.com: 2011 Al's Run registration
« on: July 14, 2011, 08:32:35 AM »
I have the team set up now. Contact me through PM, the contact form, or email for instructions if you want to join the team.

A few notes:

- I need to submit the team on August 17th. I need everyone registered by August 16th. Race day is September 17th.

- I want to see a team of AT LEAST 10 runners. I know we can get at least that many runners out there, let's go for it! I've heard people say in the past that they think they are too slow for the team. Nobody is too slow. Top 5 runners score. If you make the top 5, you're helping our competitive chances. If you don't, you're helping us make a bigger presence and not hurting our competitive chances.

- HillRunner.com will pick up half of your total entry fee (including the chip fee). That means you only have to pay $15.

- In addition, while you are registering, you will be asked about whether you want a men's singlet, women's singlet, or t-shirt and what size you want. Everyone who runs and doesn't already have a HillRunner.com singlet or t-shirt gets one.

I don't know who is going to show up this year but I'm expecting some very stiff team competition. I wouldn't be surprised at all if both PRO and InStep enter teams. I think we have the capability to build a team that could compete strongly against, if not beat, both of them but it's not going to be easy.

Another reminder. Only one week to get registered. As of now, we don't have enough runners for a scoring team, much less the team minimum of 10 runners I was hoping for. Let's have a big last week!

Quick update. We only have 4 runners on the roster right now. We need 5 for a scoring team. We have the start of a team that is at least capable of a podium finish but, without that 5th runner, we won't have any team score at all.

I know there must be someone out there who is interested and can fill this team out, if not more than one to give us some depth. Let me know where you are so you can get signed up!

Note: I have to submit the team before 5:00pm Wednesday. I need everyone who wants to be in to sign up by 4:00pm Wednesday to ensure you're in.

Only one day left to register! We're up to a roster of 6 now so we have a scoring team with one extra runner for depth. Still, I'd love to see more depth and a push for my original goal of a 10 runner roster. Can we do it?

Thanks to all who joined this year. We fell short of my goal of a 10 runner roster but we still have a scoring team with 6 runners and I'm quite confident that, while defending the title may be difficult, we will do well in the standings.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on September 17th! To the team members, I'll get an email to you by this weekend at the latest.

After the injury I am going to have to leave it all on the course.  I am talking about a feeling of collapse at the finish line type of leave it all on the course.  I might have to be carried to the car after this race.  ;D   I was so zeroed in on a sub 31 performance and now I have no clue where I am going to be - FRUSTRATED !!!!!

Collapse at the finish line and leave it all on the course? Isn't that what racing is all about anyway? ;)

They have a new timing system.  Let's see if it is better - we know its not cheaper - they didn't drop the price.
