|Start of 2010 Stumptown XC race #1 at Portland Meadows|
Who’s ready for fall? Probably none of us, but tomorrow is the last day of summer, which means fall begins soon – and the kick off of the Stumptown Cross series is hot on its heals.
Don’t worry, race #1 of the cross country series will break you in easy. It is a 5K race out at Portland Meadows, and is fairly flat (there are a few little rollers buit into the course) and is on grass for the most part. And because the week leading up to the race is going to be dry and summer-like, my guess is that your shoes will likely stay dry and clean (unfortunately). But don’t worry, this is only the first of 4 races in the Stumptown Cross series, so there will be plenty of opportunities for mud to come.
When: Saturday, Sept 24, 8:30 am
What: 5k XC race
Cost: $15 for race, or $40 for series.
