August 2016 Trophy Series and BBQ at DeKoevend Park

Friends, Friday August 5 brings our August Trophy Series race and cookout/potluck at deKoevend Park in Centennial.  This 5k run on the Highline Canal is one of our favorite races – nice course, nice location, and fantastic food afterwards.

Three important notes for this year’s race:

  1. We are back to the pavilion we’ve used in past years, Pavilion C that’s near the Rec Center.  We will cook and eat near the finish there.  You will want to park behind the rec center, and there is a bridge over the little ditch to the start.  There’s lots of parking for everyone.
  2. Bring your chairs!  This location has lots of seating, but it’s often nice to eat out on the grass.
  3. We’re considering adjusting the course to remove the hill in the first 1/2 mile – course details coming after our board meeting Monday night.

Race time is 6:30pm, so plan to come early to register and get ready.  We will have a portapotty near the start, but park restrooms are a few hundred yards away, so come early enough to make that walk if it’s needed.  Even more important:  remember to bring a dish for the potluck – side dish, salad, dessert, whatever you wish.  Bring enough for 8-10 people, and then look forward to the fun feast!  The club will provide hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, drinks, and plates and utensils.  We’ll also have a kids run with lots of fun prizes, so bring the family.

We will need more volunteers than usual to help setup the start and finish, staff aid stations and turnarounds, and to help setup our eating area.  We also need people to help cook – have any interest in being the hamburger and hot dog chef?  Help out and volunteer if you can.
