Busy, busy weekend for road racing and track and field in Montana.
First and foremost is the state track and field meets (AA & B in Kalispell - A & C in Butte). See my preview comments from a couple of days ago. And, I'll do a review post sometime Sunday or Monday.
Second up is the NCAA Regional Meets. Montana and Montana State will be at the Midwest Regional in Norman, Oklahoma. I'll try to hit the highlights for kids with Montana connections.
On the roads, we have one of the bigger weekends of the spring with no fewer than 6 events. On Saturday, we have the Evaro Mountain Challenge outside of Missoula, The Great Northern 5K in Kalispell, The Children's Health River Run in Livingston, The East Helena Fun Run, & The Shaping Our Community Fun Run in Havre.
On Sunday Jim Brewer and the University of Great Falls will be hosting th 2nd Annual Buffalo Jump Runs (1/2 Marthon, 10K, 5K) at the Buffalo Jump in Ulm (outside of Great Falls). All the proceeds from this run will go to benefit the UGF XC and Track teams - a very worthy cause.
The Buzzard will be hitting the back roads of Evaro and taking the Mountain Challenge.
For all those running and racing this weekend - good luck, have fun, and enjoye the pleasant spring weekend!!!!
