Thanks to all who endured some rather moist and frigid weather to take part in the 2017 LOTF race. We had observations of sleet at the finish line. I was wondering if we would finish the race in a snowstorm. The view upstream with mist jetting up from the turbulent water as the temperature fell was pretty awesome.
Our aspirations to become more tech savvy were challenged by the affect of rain on the iPad screens. After cross referencing notes and other materials, I think we have an accurate set of records. If you have anything to add, I’ll be happy to consider it.
As always, events like this take efforts of more than one. I would like to thank Sara Mullett for all of the registration help, bib collecting and for stoking an awesome finish line bonfire. Willy Witt for starting everyone off. Damon Patterson for spotting incoming bib numbers, and those that set safety along the course.
If those who still have bibs would be so kind to return them, it would be appreciated. These have been provided by the generosity of a few folks and are very expensive to replace.
Thanks again to all who make the Russell Fork a special place to come home to each year. Hope to see you next year,
Eric Henrickson – Race Director
