BAR To Be Rescheduled

Thank you to all the racers who signed up to show your support of the Bushwhack Adventure Race, and those who shared with us your reasons for why you are not able to race on the Sep 18-19th dates. It's clear that the desire is there, but those dates just don't work for most. As a result, we're officially postponing the BAR. Those who registered will get their entry fees back shortly.

The Bushwhack Adventures crew will take some time in the next few weeks to review what we accomplished this year and start planning for 2011. As racers, if you have some feedback about what kind of events (short vs long) you'd like to see, or what months you'd you'd like to race in, or where you'd like to see races held, please let us know. You can email info@gobushwhack.com. We'll also try to get some polls posted online soon.

Thanks for racing!

Don Childrey
and the Bushwhack Adventures crew!

Crunch Time!

Ok Racers, it's crunch time. Time to put your money where your mouth is. Saturday (the day after tomorrow), will be just three weeks away from race day for the Bushwhack Adventure Races (24 hr and 8 hr). There are only two teams signed up for the 24 hr course and none for the 8 hr. Maybe everyone is raced out this year? Maybe that's just a bad weekend? Whatever the reason, we've got to draw a line in the sand and decide whether to push forward with these events, or postpone them.

Here's the line you have to meet - if we don't have 75 racers registered by 5pm on Tuesday, Aug 31, we're going to postpone these races. The new date will most likely be in 2011. If we don't meet this goal, all paid registrations will be refunded. The goal of 75 racers is a total between both the 24 and 8 hour courses. Note that the Confirmed status on Checkpoint Tracker is a setting I have to make manually, so that indicator of the current count may be delayed in being updated. I'll do my best to keep it accurate.

What are we going to do?
