The EPGXC parents have talked about our fundraiser and decided that this year, every single dollar we raise (after expenses) will be sent to the Athletic Tornado Relief Fund set up by Washington Community High School to help purchase athletic equipment for their student athletes lost in last weekend’s storm.
Just a few years ago, Washington’s conference schedule allowed their XC team to come over for the HS invitational, and they made quite the impression, the guys clearly having a good time. In addition, the town has always had a good showing in the Furrow Euro. Their girls XC team had a fabulous showing this fall, Coach Troy Walcott led his girls to a Sectional Championship and a 12th place finish in the State (which I must say is a fine place for a team to place ).
Hi everyone! The bridge is coming along nicely and we’ll be marking both the run and the bike courses this week. Fear not, the run will still get your feet wet with multiple creek crossings. Bikes only cross once per lap, at a very rideable spot. Mountain bikes are permitted, you just have to take the bar ends off (the little horns on the outer ends of your handlebars). Worried about our bridge construction skills? Check this out:
Due to popular demand we have added a 40+ Masters cyclocross race! It will run concurrently with the Open race due to time constraints (we don’t want people racing in the dark). The only problem is this isn’t on the flyer! Tell your friends! Tell your enemies!
A few reminders:
Minimum 8 riders in each category for full payout.
30 or more riders means payouts DOUBLE
Pay full price for your first bike race, $10 if you race again
If you race the run and the bike events you will be doubly awesome
