Aside

Cloudy skies and rain did not deter participants of the inaugural Trails N Treads short course off-road race from putting their skills to the test on a semi muddy trail race. 

The next race in the Trails N Treads race series is the long course at West Branch, August 25. For all the details, click here. 

Demo / course preview August 11 at West Branch. 

This is a great opportunity for riders and runners to not only check out the West Branch course, but also test run the latest Salomon trail shoes on the course, compliments of Fleet Feet Sports. 

Mountain Road Cycles will have a few demo bikes on hand to test ride too. And we just might have some other fun stuff, give aways and such.

Shatter the Silence

The second annual Shatter the Silence will literally shatter the silence

– One in six women in America will be a victim of sexual assault
– Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted
–  60 percent of sexual assaults are not reported to the police
– Approximately 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone
known to the victim
– 38 percent of rapists are a friend or acquaintance

More than a handful of the Grunt Girls are survivors of sexual assault.
Race Director Stacy Rhea is one GG willing to step up to the plate and help
shatter the silenceby wearing a purple shirt to show she is a survivor.
(Purple is an option – others may opt for white to show their support)

At age 8, Rhea was assaulted by a family member.
She never spoke about it until she was 21.

“For years I walked around with a dark secret, wondering why …”

Rhea does not have the answer to that question, but with the help of
co-race director, Andrea Chisnell and the GGs, Rhea hopes to help
shatter the silence by educating,empowering and inspiring
others to talk and support one another.

Rape is a crime, talking about it isn’t. 

Show your support and open the door to help support GGs
and their efforts to Shatter the Silence.
A portion of the proceeds will go the
Summit and Medina Rape Crisis Center.

Registration is now open. Click here. 

The Ledges course is a beautiful rolling course. Check out the course
Saturday, Aug. 13 when the Grunt Girls lead a familiarization run.

Meet at 8 a.m. Q&A for newbies following the training run.
