Two news items: 1) Mail-in registration is now closed for both the 5k and the 8-miler, and the 5k has reached its cap, so the only online registration available is the 8-miler. The National Park Service is allowing us to raise the cap in the 8-miler, with all online registration closing at midnight September 2nd. At the end of online registration, we will know if we can have any in-person registration for the 8-miler. Again, there is no more 5k registration. Thanks to everyone who has signed up!
2) This year, Tanque Verde Ranch is offering Saguaro runners a special discount on Labor Day weekend. The guest ranch is about 5 miles from the race start – one left hand turn and down Freeman and there you are. Their regular single is $99, but LeighAnn, the marketing manager, said to contact her for special rates, including a full (and very, very good) breakfast plus their great swimming pools. Horse riding and other cool things are extra.
