BRR 2010: What’s New?

All New Finish Line Area!

So you are asking yourself, what’s new this year in the BRR?  Well, quite a few things:

  • New Finish Line Area at the Roger McGuire Green (see pic above) – apparently it is complete with a splash park…sure beats the old, hot bank parking lot!
  • New Date (one year only) – due to the Blue Ridge 75th Anniversary Celebration the race was pushed out a week.
  • New, old legs – the re-routed leg last year between Boone and Blowing Rock are back to the original Blue Ridge route – turns out bridge construction actually does come to a close.
  • Potentially 20 more teams – Capacity increased to 120 teams from roughly 100.

Still no “Mixed Ultra” category and again no headphones allowed but minor details in the grand scheme.  Now if I can only get off my hindquarters and start running again…

81 more days until the race…
