Many times, we wonder if people are listening when we as runners have questions and concerns. In this case, I can say that "Yes" Run for Your Life is listening. Below is a copy of the email that I received earlier this week.
In the email, they indicate that they are planning to run an open companion event to each Championship event. The Open event will be run after the Championship event and will not be timed. Not a perfect solution in my opinion, but at least everyone has opportunity to run.
Too often, we want the whole thing all at once, but we all would do well to remember that everything is a work in progress. Even small steps will get you to the finish line.
See you Tuesday evening,
Cool Down Runner

Summer Track Series Participants,
Championship week is Tuesday, so please read this important information regarding who is eligible.
Everyone is invited to come out and run for Championship week. Although, you must qualify for an event in order to participate in championship heats. We will run open heats for each event after all of the champion heats have run. Please note that normal track fees apply ($8 adult, $5 student), unless you have purchased a season pass.
Winners from each week automatically qualified. We then took the next 4 fastest times regardless of the week (4 male, 4 female). If someone won the event two or more weeks in a row, then we took the next fastest time regardless of the week.
** Non championship heats will not be timed and posted, so please look at the clock or your watch for your time of the open heats**
Please go to the Summer Track Series page to see what events you qualified for and also for the schedule of events. We will need to try to stick to the schedule in order to get all events done before sun down.
Thanks for coming out and making this event great. Please forward to your friends in case this message goes to their SPAM folder or they didn't give us their email.
