In an effort to continue to improve upon our stumbles race weekend, you'll begin to see updates of individuals we have promoted to lead certain areas. These individuals are stepping into these roles to dramatically improve upon these areas. Over the next 12 months they will work side-by-side with our Race Director to isolate issues that can be improved on, work on a plan to improve them and implement that plan in 2020. Please help us welcome:

Christine who has been promoted to oversee our Post Race Party including ordering, weekend operations and wrap-up. She is the go to person for our team of chefs and cooks to handle all real-time plans race weekend

Jeff who has been promoted to head our Course Sweepers Team and did a phenomenal job this past year. He will not only be in charge of ensuring all sweepers are in place, following the last runner, but also tracking the progress of the trail pack of runners communicating that with the Race Director.

Larry who joined our team for the first time this year and has stepped up to lead all photographers, identify spots on the course for additional photographers and plan prior, execute during and follow-up after with the photographers and your photos.

Others will be introduced to you to show you our commitment to always improving, always doing better and always understanding that things can be done in a way that makes the weekend experience better for everyone.

During Friday night packet pickup we lost a great companion of long time runner Steve and the race in general. "Tag" was a doggie companion for nearly 11 years and although so many tried to help him, he did not make it to the emergency vet in time.

The root beer floats where a hit this year! So much so we went through 70 gallons of ice cream. That included a last-minute run to the store for even more. Next year we're going to add an additional treat for free as part of our desserts and that is banana split floats. The kids movies inside the lodge was so much fun with coloring books and toys as well. Popcorn was popping and something new was launched that will take place every year at the North Country Trail Run. ... See MoreSee Less
