Two Rivers Solstice 100/50

SP Kennel has entered four teams in the Two Rivers Solstice 100/50! Aliy and the Red Team, Allen and the Black Team and Meghan and her Red and Black team will run 100 miles. Moira is taking the Red and Black Yearling team 50 miles. It will be quite the logistical exercise to run four teams!

The course is on trails all our dogs know well and at one stage pass very close by the kennel (we'll all have to HAW our dogs where they always GEE). The TRDMA committee and volunteers have worked extremely hard for the last few weeks organising the race and putting in the trails and staging areas for the race. THANK YOU all for the fantastic work you have all done under sometimes very trying circumstances.

There is a really strong field for both races - check out the TRDMA website for more information about the race, the course and the field.

We will post race line-ups on Friday night once they are finalised and a race wrap-ups on Sunday or Monday.

Thanks so much for the update and timing of the plan for Solstice races, and best of luck to all 4 legged and 2 legged SP Kennel team members...wish I could be there to help out!

ChaCha will be organizing the support crew, perhaps?

She can do it, but she'll need help.

The only part left out in this post is that Aliy, Allen and the SP Crew were among those out working on the trails so that we can have a race this weekend.

Special thanks to ALL of you. Your help is greatly appreciated.
