Vail Daily letter: Great running series
I’d like to express my appreciation to the Vail Recreation District staff and their board for once again putting on an excellent summer trail running series. The VRD staff of Kip Tingle, Beth Pappas, Joel Rabinowitz and others provided well planned and executed events that were a pleasure to participate in for locals and visitors alike.
This year I had several visitors who had run the races for the first time tell me that they enjoyed the well planned events and would make an effort to participate in more runs next year. I know the staff puts in many hours planning the events, doing the timing, planning for prizes and routing the courses. This year’s course routing was more difficult than usual with all the construction on the mountain but the staff managed to create routes that were innovative, interesting and challenging.
Thanks to all of you for what you have done to make a great running season for the Vail Mountain Trail Running Race Series.
