Pencil in May as your Off-Road fixation month.
The fun starts on May 5th with the return of the Black Locust Off-Road Duathlon. This is a 3 mile run, 8 mile MTB ride, 2 mile run du held at the Sac River Trails north of Springfield off of Hwy 13. Info: 417-887-3560 or Springfieldracing.com.
Then come on out May 18th for the 14th annual Ozark Greenways Adventure Race. This is a high quality local adventure race, with Long and Short course options for 4 person or 2 person teams. Race HQ will be on the Frisco Trail so you can sleep in your own bed and roll out to race. Info: 417-869-0990 or http://greenwayrace.org/.
Club apparel samples are available for try on for a couple more days at Ultramax Sports. We've got a lot of orders in and you don't want to miss out on a sweet new outfit.
For coming in last Saturday, Shawn Crowley won the $20 Ultramax gift certificate and Derek Kaelin won the free club arm sleeves!
Saturday group rides start this Saturday, Feb 23rd!
Start: 10am ready to ride at Ultramax Sports. We'll roll out from Ultramax right at 10, so have the tires pumped, the kit all on and be ready to go.
Pace: 14-16mph aerobic base pace. Later on, as the season progresses, we may split up groups with some who would like to go faster, but for now, we'll all ride together.
For now this will be a no-drop ride. There are some hills around here so on the longer ones that break a group a part, we'll wait for all to finish the hill. We'll also make sure that everyone is together on any turns.
Weather Policy: If it's raining, icy, or snows on the road, we'll cancel and ride inside. Shawn Deal is leading these rides and will be there if it's over 30 degrees. He'll email the group listserv and tweet if the ride is canceled by 8am Saturday mornings.
We'll be heading out towards Rogersville, so there are multiple places to turn around if you would rather just ride 1, 1.5, 2, or if you decide to ride longer there's options for you with that, as well.
Pit stops: We'll stop twice-once in Ozark over by Lamberts, and the second time at the gas station at the Evans road exit. I would still encourage you to have at least 2 water bottles, and some food on you.
Hope this covers the questions, but would love to answer any more. Email shawn[AT]life360.org
Join us on Sunday, Jan 13th at 3PM at Qdoba on Republic Rd and Kansas Expressway for an informational meeting about our "plan" for travel, transportation, activities, training, coaching, etc for IMAZ 2013.
We welcome club members who are participating in other long races who want to take advantage of the opportunity to train with us along the way.
