The Gauntlet Trail Race - Thank You!

Apr 17, 2016

Our first trail race at Pima College on Saturday night is now in the history books.  Thank you for coming out and making our first one fun.   We had 102 finishers in the women's race and 72 for the men on a great sunny afternoon. Top finishers were Aleta Jokisch for the women in 34:24 and Brian Hall in the men's race with a time of 31:07.  This is a technical course with lots of hills on the trails of Pima Community College's west campus.   Results can be found here!

Special thanks to our sponsor, The Running Shop and Sharon Bart, for the generous overall and age group awards.  Also, much of the pre-event work was done by SAR board members Diane Manzini and Lucas Tyler... I really appreciate all their work!   Race day help was provided by Tim Bentley, Steve Outridge,and John Sabatine.  We had a host of other volunteers out to help out who we really appreciate.  

The Gauntlet will provide some financial support to our Pima College Track & Field Teams, who are currently in-season and doing very well.  Over 50 student-athletes are on the team with about half of them earning national championship qualifying marks so far!

If you didn't get your award after the race, please stop by The Running Shop.  Thanks again for coming to the race!

The first annual GAUNTLET 8k Trail Race Update!

Apr 14, 2016

It's On!  The Gauntlet 8k Trail Race at Pima College West will take place this Saturday afternoon starting on the track at West Campus.  The women's race will be at 4:45 and the men will start at 5:30!

You can pick up your t-shirt, bib number, and timing chip at the track starting at 3:15 and up until the race start!

This is a rugged course on the desert trails of Pima College West Campus at 2202 West Anklam.  The event will take place on the track and we will have an awards ceremony at about 6:45 in the infield grass.  Awards are in 10 year age groups for men and women. Trophies will be awarded along with gift certificates to The Running Shop.  

Please bring a blanket and some snacks (or a full blown picnic dinner) to hang out after the race. Although we had a little trouble with the food trucks, we will be serving snacks after the event.   We will have a kids dash on the track after the events for all kids 10 years and under.  

We look forward to seeing you out there on Saturday!  If you have questions, contact race director Greg Wenneborg at gwenneborg@hotmail.com.
