Horse Butte 2014

The 2014 event has reached the limit. Going to be an interesting day on the trails as we had a few inches of snow yesterday and the trail has a layer of the white stuff on it as of about noon today.

SD’S DOWN AND DIRTY

A few firsts today.

1. It was t shirt and shorts weather after the chilly morning.

Online Registration

Added a new way to register for races. Ultra Sign Up is awesome and I will always use them but decided to give Athletes Path a try since they have quite theĀ  following as well. Hopefully this will lead to more folks out enjoying runs through the forest and make for some great competition. Hit the button below to register for the upcoming SD’s Down and Dirty Half and 10k.

Jere Breese Memorial Ranch Stampede

September 7th 2013 at 7am there will be a 5k and 10k run taking place on a private Ranch just East of Prineville Oregon. The run is a 5k loop that includes hills, water, singletrack, and dirt roads that will bring out your inner child and maybe set a new heart rate max. This race also serves as a cross country meet for Central Oregon high schools so after the open division (read not in high school runners) you can hang out and watch the young guns duke it out on the same course you just rocked.

Registration forms are available at Footzone in downtown Bend and online registration will be open soon. Superfit Productions is very excited to be working with this great run that is a benefit for cancer research and Crook County cross country. Come out and enjoy the fun while supporting a great cause.

2013 Horse Butte 10 miler

It was a pretty epic day out there on the 10 mile loop. Wind, hail, sun, snow, and more wind. Everyone was up to the challenge and seem to have a good time. I hope to have a little more elaborate race report but results are up just use this here hyperlink 2013 RESULTS

Thank you to all who came out and raced or volunteered.

Almost there

SD’s Down and Dirty Half and 10k will take place next Sunday October 21st. This will be the final race of the year for Superfit Productions (SFP). It is looking like the trails are going to receive some much needed moisture so the dust will be down a bit. Happy to see some rain as we haven’t had any of significance since June.

On tap for the weekend is a great 13.1 mi and 10k trail runs beginning and ending at the 7th mt resort. The trail has just about everything you could want from a trail run, uphills, downhills, dirt roads, singltrack, well stocked aid stations, great volunteers, post race party with Deschutes Brewery beer and Longboard Louie’s . If the weather isn’t favorable we have the run of the heated tent at the finish so bring clothes and come to hang out.

Packet pick up is scheduled for Saturday October 20th at the Footzone in downtown Bend from NOON to 6. Address is 845 nw wall street. Packets will also be available at the 7th mt race day beginning at 7:30.

Hope to see you there!

Jamba Juice is in!

That’s right folks the cool people from Jamba Juice here in Bend are gong to be waiting for you at the finish of the Horse Butte 10 miler. If you have done this race in the past you have seen them there handing out free smoothies to all the finishers. For those who are new to the event you can’t miss them, they are wearing banana costumes…and they have smoothies. I am so happy to partner with these guys again for some of the 2012 Superfit events. Next time you are craving a delicious fruity treat head over to the Bend Jamba Juice buy a smoothing and tell them thanks for supporting the local running scene here in Bend Oregon.
