Leatherman’s Loop News Volume 25 issue 4: Loop Tomorrow!
To All Runners:
The course is marked and ready to go… We hope you are too! The course is soft and looks like pleasant weather will be with us tomorrow.
The gate attendant at the park will be waving loop participants through – no $8 park entry fee – we included the parking fee in your race registration.
Arrive early – drive carefully. We would like to begin as close to 9am as possible. Plan on having your bibs and heading right to the starting line at 8:45 am. We will have a few pre-race announcements, take a few minutes to introduce a few special guests, then the 25th running of the Leatherman’s Loop will commence.
To help us with the race scoring, please make certain that your race number bib is exposed before you enter the finishing chute and do not pin the tear-strip at the bottom of the bib to your shirt. If you wish—at the beginning of the race—you can wear an extra layer over the shirt your number is pinned to which you can discard as you run by the teepee. It will be there for you when you finish.
Please exercise caution and common sense at both of the stream crossings. Ease into each crossing slowly and do not enter them full stride. The exit of the first stream crossing was slippery today and will most likely be tomorrow. Help the runner in front and the one behind if possible.
Bring a full set of warm dry clothes (including socks and shoes) to change in to after you finish. You will get wet! We will have water, coffee, bagels, and fruit at the finish—but its always a good idea to have your own water on race day.
Don’t forget your food donation to the Community Center of Northern Westchester – “Help Feed the Leatherman!” Look for the van with the banner! It will be near the bib pickup area. Check here for latest needs.
…Put your food donation in your car now so you don’t forget it!
Full race finishing results will be posted to the web site http://www.leathermansloop.org by late afternoon after the race.
If you see the Leatherman out and about, give a yell!
See you bright and early tomorrow…
Mike, Tony, Kate, Rob, Bill, and the Loop Volunteers
