Attention Runners! Upcoming Races! Let’s Represent!

We got the T-shirts now it’s time to represent at some local races! There are two races Crossfit Endurance Springfield is focusing on in the month of August.

1. The Urban Orienteering Race – 8/3/2012

There were several of us who participated in the January Urban Orienteering Race this past winter and had a blast. Our friends from Ultra Max have added a summer version!  Using a map provided by race staff, teams will have 2 hours to find as many marked checkpoints on foot in downtown Springfield as possible, answering fun trivia questions along the way.  S0, If you have a good base of general and random knowledge, you have an advantage!  Last year participants covered as much as 7 miles during the race! We will meet at Fire Station #1, 730 E. Grand at 6:30PM and form teams of 2-5 people. Race day registration is $15. Please post to comments if you are interested and we will see you on Friday night for some running, jogging, walking and trivia, study up!

The 6th Anual Tiger Tri is fast approaching and we want to encourage each of you who have ever even thought about doing a triathlon to get out and participate in the Tiger Tri. This race is great for both beginner and experienced triathletes alike. The race starts with a 300 yard pool swim, 12 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. No fancy tri-bike, wet-suits or racing belts are required for this race. Get out there and challenge your self to do something different.
