Email Format

If you receive your email on your phone, be sure to pick “mobile” as your preferred email format – it is a lot easier to read on the phone when you do this.

We mail less than 10 times per year. We only email trail race related notes and pre-race announcement information for Leatherman’s Loop, Run The Farm, and other races we are directly involved with planning or advising (e.g. The Trail Mix Series). We don’t share or sell our email list.

If you want to unsubscribe, you can click here — or click the link at the bottom of most emails we send you. Note some emails are sent as registration confirmation and don’t have an unsubscribe since we assume you want to hear from us about the race you registered for!

There are a few ways to keep in touch:

1.) Submit your email address (above) if you want to get notified about Leatherman’s LoopRun The Farm, and related news.  Make sure leathermansloop@gmail.com is in your address book so our emails to you don’t get tagged as spam. Note that email is unreliable so you may want a backup (#2-#4 below) if you don’t want to miss any updates.

2.) Check the website, especially in late December and early January each year for news and important dates to note. (Add a calendar reminder to your phone or computer calendar for December 26th to check back here!)

3.) Become a friend of the Leatherman on Facebook.  This has an advantage over email since updates won’t get blocked by Spam filters.  However, it is only useful if you use Facebook.

3.) Follow the Leatherman on Twitter (@LeathermansLoop). We will post news and registration links to Twitter along with the occasional random nugget. We will use the hashtags #LeathermansLoop and #RunTheFarm for those events.

4.) Follow the Leatherman on Tumblr. We will post news and registration links to Tumblr automatically when items are posted to the website. We will use the hashtags #LeathermansLoop and #RunTheFarm for those events.

5.) Follow the Leatherman on Google +. We will post news and registration links to Google+ automatically when items are posted to the website. We will use the hashtags #LeathermansLoop and #RunTheFarm for those events.

Registration for the Loop is separate from the email notification list. When you sign up here, we will add your email to our Main Email List we use for general notifications for Leatherman’s Loop, Run The Farm, and other trail races we are involved with supporting.

Starting in 2012 we only register runners via Loop Lottery for Leatherman’s Loop race registration.

We will send everyone on the Main Email List a reminder in late December a few weeks before the lottery registration opens (the 2016 annoucement note is here).  As always, we apologize if you are shut out of the race due to space constraints or if you miss the Loop Lottery window.

You can unsubscribe at any time with no hassles either from one of our emails (link is at bottom) or by and clicking this unsubscribe link

Please do not tag our emails as spam! That interferes with our ability to send messages to everyone else. Unsubscribe works instantly. If you don’t want to hear from us, we are OK with that.

Please note: if you are registered to run the Leatherman’s Loop or Run The Farm, you will get confirmation emails and several logistics emails prior to the events even if you opt-out of this list.

If you are not registered but wish to get notified when the Loop Lottery is opening or when Run The Farm registration is opening or closing, sign up above.
