10th Explore Your Limits

March 1st 2014, at 9:00am

It isn't too often that cold weather is needed for a race, but the chilly temps helped keep the trails in great condition and keep people on their feet (OK, more people, I did see quite a few of you who fell).  You can't imagine how slick the trails were yesterday or today when we cleaned things up.  Whoa! 

The Explore Your Limits is a special race.  It was the first race that Gina and I became a part of and one of the main reasons we are directing races today.  We know the Explore Park as well as anyone and we are glad to help keep it open for recreation and enjoy introducing more and more people to the park. 

See the links to the individual results pages to the right.

We had 149 finishers in the 5k and 218 in the 10k.  2 new records were set, the 5k male masters record was broken by William Vickery in 21:08.82 and the 10k female masters record fell to Tabitha Walker in 50:29.31.  Great work to you two.

Great work to all of you.  Whether it was your first 5k walk/5k run/10k run or trail race congratulations.  It's always great to see people push their limits.

Registration for our Montvale 5/10 milers on 3/22 will go up $5 on Thursday.  Also register by then to guarantee getting your preferred shirt size.  Montvale is an awesome park, if you haven't been, you need to go. 

We will have the overall and age group awards at our office, Gilbert Chiropractic, for the next two weeks, and then they go back into the rotation for 2014 - 375-3990.


Thank you to John Wimmer Photography for taking pictures on the trail - 293-1874.  We will post photos taken during the race on our Facebook Page (become a fan if you haven't already).


Make sure you show our sponsors some love by visiting them and letting them know you participated in our race and that you thank them for supporting our events.  Their help and support keeps us going.
