I like the idea, but there's a lot of competition here. It's quite a bit of work and can be difficult to find a free weekend to hold a new race.

history. We could have it be on local trails combined with a hike for
those who don't run. We could have the regular 5k running competition,
but also categories for participants/teams who participate by doing the
course in a evolution-humanist related costume or who make donations to a
Here's an example that was done in Lehigh, PA
Just a thought!
See you when I get back, the second half of September, and have a nice
time in Harrisburg,
