Okay, if you plan on running up Baer Canyon with Crazy Bob in the Bairgutsman on August 1st, the race is quickly reaching capacity and once it's closed, it's closed to everybody. The only place to register is at Striders or at Active.com. Here are the details: 6am start time on Mountain Road in Fruit Heights. $55 entry fee, NO REFUNDS. Awards for the top male and female runners; all finishers get a shirt. The race ends in Farmington Canyon at the gate after running up the canyon and down the service road. You have to find your own ride the rest of the way down the canyon, or you can run home. It's a hell of a run and can get very expensive for you if you have to be air lifted off the mountain; so don't try to compete with Crazy Bob unless you know what you're doing.
