BCUTS and Diez Vista 2010
Bruce Grant, the series director for the BCUTS (BC Ultra Trailrunning Series), has posted all the info on the extensive 2010 series onto the BCUTS facebook group. He’s even gone as far as to create separate events for each race so you can mark your attendance and invite your friends along.
Included in the group, is elusive info on the Diez Vista 50k. The race has changed race directors this year, and its almost impossible to find info on outside of the above group. The old DV race website has been taken down and I’ve noticed increased traffic to my blog on the google search term “Diez Vista 50k”. This in turn has prompted this re post, with the race info copy direct from Bruce.
Diez Vista changes RD for 2010:
Paul Slaymaker and his wife Penny have decided to pass on the reigns of organizing the DV race after five years. They deserve huge credit for putting on such an excellent event while raising a child and running their own business. Thanks for all the sweat and dedication, Paul and Penny!
N ext time you drop by the Runner’s Den in Port Moody, please give Paul a huge thanks for all his work over the last five years.
I’d also like to welcome the new RD….actually he is the old RD! George Forshaw originated the DV race and he and his wife Gail ran it for years before passing it on to Paul and Penny. George can’t seem to stay retired, so will be back putting on DV in 2010. We’re lucky to have him organizing it once again.
The race is scheduled for Saturday the 10th April 2010 and will be sure to make it onto my race calendar.
