The WHEE Run Pre Run will be August 26th at 9:00 at the race start/finish, Sacandaga Campground. Please see the directions page if you would like to join us. We'll meet at Rigdon meadows, the first right after turning off road 21. The run will follow the race course thus will be out and back, allowing for any distance. There will be snacks at the finish.

I'd like to give a shout out to James at Level 32 racing for putting out the WHEE Run brochure during his races. Thanks James

Thanks to all who came out for the race. The weather turned out not too bad. At the finish line, I heard almost exclusively about the beautiful course, not the weather. Thank you to my beautiful assistant RD, M Victoria Moran, my daughter Monet and my board members and aid station captains Ron Stone and David Pila. Thanks to the folks from First Baptist of Oakridge who came out to volunteer. Thank you to our paramedic, Nathan who waited all day, thankfully, he was not needed! Thank you to Amanda, our Chef, who makes "the best soup ever".
Special Thanks to the US Forest Service for allowing us to use the trail and for getting the great new bridge over swift creek done as well as several other new bridges. Thank you to the G.O.A.T.S. for their work on the trail. But most of all I thank God for the beautiful forest and for the chance to share it and the joy of running with the community.
Thanks to Ray and the guys with High Desert Radio Amateur Group (HiDARG), our HAM radio operators. Their help is essential to keep everything running and most importantly to help keep all the runners and volunteers safe.
Finally, thanks to our sponsors, Eugene Running company, Greenlayer Sports and GU Energy.
Results are available on the results page and pictures will be up next week.
Thanks to our sponsor, Eugene Running company, we'll have some sweet prizes for our drawing. All runners will be automatically entered in the random drawing. Prizes include Balega sock, Asics tech shirts and hats, and some cool lockable shoelaces
