Post Loop 2003 Buzz

A full 6 weeks post race and “Loop” headquaters is still buzzing with activity.

Here’s the scoop. Dave Cope and I were recently interviewed by RUNNING TIMES mag. Look for a feature article on the “Loop” this summer. Some of you runners were also interviewed. They are trying to figure out why our event has become the most popular trail race in the northeast. If any of you can shed some light on this, please feel free to post your ideas.

Your race organizers are all very excited about the Rolf Anker collection of black and white photographs which Mitch has begun to post. Check them out on the photo pages of this site. If any of you can provide names for any of the unidentified runners we would appreciate your help.

The BLUE MOON race has a tentative date of October 5th. This event is about ready to move from legend to reality. Four of us ran the course on Sunday. It’s tough! Some of you will be contacted to test run the course this summer. Let us know if you are interested.

Some of you noticed the duck shirts that our volunteers were wearing at this years “Loop”. It is another great Tim Parshall design and we plan to use it for next years race shirt. Tim has provided the art for all but four of the shirts. He can also run and won the 50 yr. old division this year in 45:04.

Please feel free to e-mail us with your comments or better yet, post them on this page.
