TRL Board Election Results

For those who haven’t already heard the outcome of the TRL board elections, as of Wednesday, January 20, 2014, we now have 4 new officers in place. While there was only one contested race for the 4 officer positions that TRL members were deciding on, there were still 100 votes cast. That isn’t bad for [...]

TRL History Lesson at Election Time

I originally wrote the following 6 years ago when I was “moving on” after 4 years as president of this fine organization. I updated dates to make this a current history, but it seemed worth sharing again since many of the perspectives and people involved in making this organization what it is haven’t changed. One [...]

Purge & Splurge on New Years Eve

New Years Eve… a time when most people think about staying up late to ring in the new year, or about the resolutions they plan to make for the following year. Well, why not resolve to do something epic before 2015 even comes to an end? For more than a decade, local running tradition has [...]

The Night Before Cross Country

By Kristen Dedeaux ‘Twas the night before XC, thus begins our story Not a runner was resting, not even Sir Torrey. The singlets were hung from the clotheslines with care, In hopes that by morning they’d be ready to wear. The harriers were wide awake in their nests, While visions of hay bales had them [...]

Thanksgiving Trail Run in Tryon

Thanksgiving… a day when overeating is on almost everyone’s menu. Fortunately, runners are smart. No, we will probably still overeat, but we will at least get some exercise beforehand so we feel better about ourselves. For those runners not wanting to spend a chunk of change on one of the numerous turkey trots around the [...]

Lizard Board Elections This Winter

It isn’t often that the political drama of candidates vying for the U.S. Presidency overlaps with the usual lack of drama that surrounds elections for the TRL board of directors, but that is exactly what is about to happen this fall/winter. And who doesn’t love a lack of drama?!? OK, I suppose there could be [...]

Stumptown Splits Things Up

The 2015 Stumptown Cross series is “off to the races” with 2 events done and 3 to go. And based on the weather forecast, it looks like fall will definitely be in the air this weekend. Perhaps I should re-phrase that… rain will be falling, and bits of mud and grass will be flying in [...]

Spooky Pub Run – Wed, Oct 28

As the days continue to shorten and October draws to a close, it is time to start thinking about an annual tradition that some might call “spooky.” What could be more spooky than switching up the route on our Wednesday night Pub Run so that it meanders through the cemetery after dark? Are you brave [...]

Timothy Lake Trail Run – Oct 24, 2015

The trail running season is upon us… ok, I’m not sure there isn’t ever a time that isn’t great for running trails… but fall/winter seems to be the time when the trails have fewer hikers and runners might be looking for some added motivation to get out there. And what better way to motivate yourself [...]
