The “Keepin’ it Rural” 5K/10K Hike and Trail Run

12031363_1042613869124527_4951592216726092640_o
An important fundraiser is taking place this fall (Sunday, October 25) at the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve. The “Keeping’ it Rural 5K/10K hike and trail run will take place in the upper part of the reserve (with the blessing of OMWD, TECC, EFHG Fire and RSF Fire). It is the first of many fundraising efforts we will be embarking on in order to put up a good fight against things that threaten the rural environment we cherish. I’ve included the details of the event below:

Here’s where we would love to have community support:

a) REGISTER FOR THE EVENT: we want as many residents of the Harmony Grove, Elfin Forest, Eden Valley and surrounding communities (and their families) to participate in either the 5K hike/run or the 10K run. It will be early in the morning so hopefully pretty cool and quite scenic. So click HERE to sign up for the event (or copy and paste this into your browser: https://www.runreg.com/the-elfin-forest-keeping-it-rural-5k10kletskeepitruralcom)

b) VOLUNTEER TO HELP: we ALSO need about 20-25 volunteers (water, registration, timing, direction, bag stuffing and other areas). Please let us know if you are willing and able to help. Anyone with EMT or CPR or first aid background would be appreciated as well.

c) SPONSORSHIP SOLICITATION: if you know of any companies that would like to be associated with the “Keepin’ it Rural” event, please reach out to them and see if you can get donations of cash, items, services. Sponsorships are crucial to making these events able to raise more funds than the entry fees.

Here are the pertinent details:

SCHEDULE: Registration starts: 6:45am | 10k Race Kickoff: 7:45am | 5K Race Kickoff: 8am

5K PRICING: $40 early bird (before 9/25) | $50 regular | $60 day of event. Includes finisher t-shirt and medal.

San Elijo Hills Resident and Trail Runner Dax Ross Featured in Union Tribune

His story

Dax Ross leads an active life as a trail runner, long-distance hiker and surfer, but it wasn’t always that way. He ran a year of cross country and track at San Dieguito High but then “started smoking and getting into bad habits.” When he was a student at UCSD he recalls going to watch his girlfriend (now wife), Sanam, at track meets and cheering her on while puffing away. “She tells me now that would be a deal-breaker, but back then it was OK,” he says, laughing.

Eventually, he quit smoking and used running (short distances) to help kick the habit. His initial hatred of running melted away. He fell in love with being active. He did sprint-distance triathlons, road races and an Ironman triathlon.

Along the way, he discovered what he really enjoyed was being out in nature. He lives in the San Elijo Hills area with his wife and three children, adjacent to an extensive network of trails. READ MORE via San Diegan leads active life as a trail runner | UTSanDiego.com.
