Waterton Canyon 2004
June 12, 2004
Congratulations to the overall winners of the race: Young Jonathan Huie had a smashing time of 23:35, while Susan Bellard blazed a time of 28:43.
We were not only blessed with some fast runners, but we had nine competitive walkers as well. In addition, we had four children for the kids one miler this year. Ken Green's grand daughter, Taylor, has finished a 5K so this must have been very easy for her. We also had a stroller, which goes to prove that running is a lifetime sport.
Next year we will get back to the 10K race at Waterton. The Denver Water Board has been helpful and supportive. Somewhere after the first two miles we enter Forest Service land, however, the Forest Service was unable to tell us where. In May of 2001 CMRA received a FAX stating that we did not need a permit from the Forest Service to conduct a 10K, however, that is no longer the case. Therefore we will begin to seek a permit in the fall for 2005.
Thanks to Great Harvest Bread on north Wadsworth and Runners Roost for donating two $25 gift certificates. Please let our sponsors know they are appreciated.
This is a volunteer organization and the race would not have happened without the following folks. Here is just part of what they did: Joe Baird (you saw him at the finish line with a timer, but the list is too long to name how he supports this club), Joe Sanchez (set up the course and carried the supplies), Levi Gonzales (at the turn around), Connie Ahrnsbrak (went to the Forest Service twice seeking a permit, worked registration and did lots of other stuff) , Rosalia Murch (making sure things are in the right place), Jerry Murch (registration and overall Devil's Advocate), Rob Fisher (club president at the finish line), Kenneth Greene (finish line), Cindy Trotter (water table), and behind the scenes Scott McFarlane (web page), Tom Allison (brought money box to my house), Bill Smitham ( brought bike with Jones Counter to my house). Course measurement, pop, ice, bread, awards, insurance, equipment maintenance and set up all goes into making sure things turn out fun.
Pulling off a race is a team sport. It is well worth the effort when I see runners and walkers stepping over the finish line.
