Golden Gallup a Success

A Mountain Ridge couple organized this terrific event a couple of weekends ago to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research and to support families struggling with the disease.  The day started with dumping rain but by the time the course was set up and folks walking and running the race showed up the rain was gone, leaving only cool and overcast conditions, which I think are pretty much perfect for running.

The race – starting in Lions Park, north to Iowa, south along Tucker Gulch, and then back to Lions Park along Clear Creek (with a second loop along N. Table Mountain trails for the 10k – went really well.  I don’t know the total number of participants, but it was well attended, with tons of volunteers.  I had a great time and was happy to help out with such a worthy local event.

Hats off to the organizers, the many volunteers, and everyone who participated (and raised money for pancreatic cancer research and family support).
