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.


F1 Triathlon

On Saturday, August 30th, Roswell's Bottomless Lakes State Park played host to the third F1 Triathlon, a unique event consisting of a 800m swim/14K bike/4K run/14K bike/4K run. The swim leg is in beautiful Lea Lake, and as such, is one of the few open-water swim triathlons in New Mexico. The bike leg(s) are also draft-legal, giving triathletes a chance to practice their pack-riding skills. Robert Abernathy was the only SSR member to travel to Roswell, and he finished in 2:07:33, good for 4th in his age group.


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.


Fat Tire Fiesta Committee Meeting September 11

The next Fat Tire Fiesta committee meeting will be held at 6:00PM, on Thursday, September 11th, at the Chamber of Commerce office. Several ride leader, co-leader, and race volunteer jobs are still lacking names, and we need to fill these soon. Please contact Mark if you think you can help. The event will be held over the weekend of September 20-21.
