Many of you are already planning your 2017 race calendar. I get it. You run a really fun race and you want to go back again next year; or maybe you need to go back because you have unfinished business with a course.

You’ll notice a couple different things about our 2017 calendar; Volcanic 50 is moving to August to avoid the Labor Day weekend, the Pick Your Poison Relay is going on a hiatus, and we’re planning a second Go Race Series in the Fall. We also have a couple new events that we are working on.
The permitting process for most of our races occurs in the Fall, so these dates are dependent on permit approval.
Go, get out your calendars! You’ve got some racing to plan.
