Meetup.com is organizing an event called The Great Urban Race
, and has asked the Organizers of Meetup Groups to list it as an event for their Meetup (click here to see my event posting
I have nothing to do with this event, but I'm promoting it in my group primarily because Meetup said they'd give me $50 if I did. I plan to have a late summer/early fall hike on a Saturday afternoon, followed by a BBQ at my home, for the After Work Hiking Plus! Meetup group, and I figured I'd take the $50 and use it for the BBQ. I haven't picked a date yet for the hike/BBQ, but stay tuned.
As for the Great Urban Race, I do not plan to participate in it personally, but if one of you is interested in forming a team, let me know and I can make you an Event Organizer and you can make appropriate postings and arrangements. I know other Meetup groups have decided to participate.
