About This Activity

This is going to be great!

We're holding a new event for Taconic Members which is free!  Free as in beer. And free as in electronics. As you can't wear any electronics. No iPhones. No Bat Phones. No GPS. No old school timex which is the best running watch ever and everyone with their stupid GPS watches are not real runners anyway.

So what's the point? Oh, it just gets better and better.

You run 2.5 miles and you guess your time. The runner who gets closet to their time wins. And they win prize money. Prize money in this case is a $100 amazon gift certificate. Whoa!  A $100?  You could buy two of the watches the old timers are always talking about, and still have money left over.

After the run we'll have our club meeting which is going to be awesome.  We'll have good food, beer if you're legal and willing, wine if you need to whine, and we'll get to watch Greg Diamond figure out who the winner is. As he's doing the calculation, he'd like a lot of irrelevant questions, shouted from about 7' away.

And the winner will receive great praise and the admiration of his or her peers (note there is one winner, this is a gender neutral race, much like dating in college).

Oh, there's one more thing - the first 100 people to sign up get a free Taconic shirt. This is  brand new gear (I hate when people write "kit," what, are we English now?), and much like this race, will become an instant classic.

The only requirement for entry is you need to be a Taconic member.

The race will have chip timing (because otherwise much stress) and you'll be scored on net time (not gun time).

We'll see you there.
