Note to Western States Runners


Colleen here. I am writing on behalf of Lisa and Jay, who are up at Targhee hosting this week’s Ultrarunning camp. Boy do I wish I was there!

At any rate, I know so many of you – runners, crew members, pacers, and family and friends who supported Western States dreams this year - are so disappointed about the cancellation of the event. The Race Organizers have made a very responsible decision and we hope that conditions improve in the area for everyone’s health and safety.

Lisa and Jay would like to offer a discount to those runners who are now deciding upon a new race to which you can apply your health, fitness and training.

From now until July 31 (or earlier, if we meet the maximum number), the Grand Teton Races will offer the following discounts to those who cannot participate in Western States this year:

$65 off to the first 30 to register for the Grand Teton Races 100 Mile Race

$15 off or the first 20 to register for the Grand Teton Races 50 Mile Race

Please send an e-mail to Jay will respond to you on or after Sunday, June 29th (when the Dreamchasers Running Camp has concluded).

Please be sure to include your name and the distance (GTR 50 or GTR 100) for which you would like to register in the subject of your e-mail.

Jay will respond and provide you with complete instructions for registering online with the appropriate discount code.

And two special shout-outs:

Meredith…we love you!!!!!!!!!!!!! And are thinking about you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Georgie: Happy Birthday, George Velasco! We love you, too!!!

It's great to see the Batchen's as well as the rest of the ultrarunning community's thoughtfulness in the wake of the unfortunate cancellation of Western States. Way to go, Lisa and Jay!
