2003 Socorro Fat Tire Fiesta

Fat Tire Fiesta Picture Rally Preview

A preview of a new activity for this year's Fat Tire Fiesta, a mountain bike picture rally, will be held on Thursday, August 28th, starting at 5:15PM on the Socorro Plaza.

Our first picture rally was held in May; the rally started from the plaza, and each team had a packet of photos taken around Socorro, where each photo represented a location on the rally. For reference, each photo contained a shot of M Mountain. There was writing on the road along the rally; the objective was to spot as much of the writing as possible, and make sense of it by the end of the rally.

So please come to the Plaza and help preview the Fat Tire Fiesta picture rally. Some preparation is needed for this to run smoothly at the actual event.


Regular Meeting To Be Held Tuesday

The September regular club meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 2nd, at the public library meeting room. Currently on the agenda is a triathlon wrap-up, a Fat Tire Fiesta report, a report on the Fall Running Series, and a discussion of club jerseys (again).


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.

Fall Running Series Announced

A series of 5K races is planned for the Fall, to be held on Sunday mornings starting on September 7th, and every third Sunday thereafter. This'll be a low-key event, with prizes going to the overall winners in each of four age groups in both genders. The series fee is $5 and that'll buy entry into all four races and a series T-shirt. All races meet in front of the EMRTC building (at the rattlesnake sculpture). The actual courses will be determined later. Download a flyer here.


Hash House Harriers Meet September 4

The sixth meeting of the Socorro Hash House Harriers will be at 6PM at the brew pub on September 4th. The run starts at 6:30PM with a live hare! It's also Just Laura's 5th hash, and she gets an official hash name! She'll join Virtual Clinton, Nuclear Seaman, and Papa Don't Preach as named Socorro Hash House Harriers.
