2003 Socorro Fat Tire Fiesta

Fat Tire Fiesta Planning Meeting TONIGHT

The triathlon is barely over, and now the 2003 Fat Tire Fiesta draws near. Why do we keep doing this to ourselves? It must be the heat...

The "T minus one month" meeting of the Fat Tire Fiesta planning committee will be held on Wednesday, August 20, at 6:00 PM in the Socorro Chamber of Commerce. While much of the preliminary work for the Fat Tire Fiesta is complete, we still have _plenty_ to do. Contact Mark or Camille if you want to help!


Duke City And Rio Grande Marathon Date Conflict

It was recently brought to our attention that the Duke City Marathon (Albuquerque) and the Rio Grande Marathon (Las Cruces) have landed on the same date, October 26th. You choose. Both events offer a marathon, marathon relay, half-marathon, and 5K run and walk. Duke City also offers a marathon walk and a kids-K. Both are Boston qualifiers. Duke City has a website, while Rio Grande has an entry form, and will have a website by October.

Spoke 'n Word To Open Friday

Karl Frisch is opening Socorro's new bike shop, the 'Spoke n Word', at a ribbon-cutting at 10AM on Friday, August 22nd. The shop is located on the Socorro Plaza, next to Martha's Black Dog and the Capitol Bar. Let's all attend the grand opening and give this much-needed store a big start!


Los Alamos Triathlon

Los Alamos hosted their unique bike/swim/run-format triathlon for the umpteenth time (really, this is possibly the oldest continuously-run triathlon in the world, although the MVTC in Las Cruces also claims that honor) last weekend. Last year's winner Christian Krueger got his revenge against Clay Moseley for beating him at the Socorro Triathlon by turning it around and beating him by two seconds. Christian finished third overall in 0:59:54 behind Dave Derkacs and pro Jimmy Archer.

Laura Wilcox grabbed first in her age group with a 1:13:55, and Robert Abernathy finished 14th in his age group in 1:24:01.
