Fall Beast This Weekend!

So, it's almost winter, the snow is starting to come down into the valleys and there isn't too much going on in terms of off season races. Well, if you want to get off your ass and hit up an awesome race this weekend, you can!
The Fall Beast runs this coming Sunday December 2nd and takes place just south of Seattle Washington. Because the race is on Sunday morning, you can travel down on Saturday, race Sunday morning, and then make the return trip all in the weekend without taking off a work day. The event is put on by Eric Bone and the crew of Team Mergeo.com members.
Check out their website at http://www.beastrace.com/
For a mere $60 US (that's only $59.74 CA) you can sign up and have a blast.

The race length is similar to a MOMAR with a time ranging from 4 to 7 hours. Disciplines include running, bushwacking and mountain biking. Of course, there will be lots of navigation with little or no marked sections of the course. There is no kayak stage in the race.

So, if you want to get on the ball and get in some practice before the 2008 MOMARs, this is the race to do. Hope to see you there!
