Wow, that's so cool! Are these first time events? I'd love to hear how they turn out, in terms of attendance, etc... There's been some chatter of organizing something similar in the mid-Atlantic/northeast.

Yes they are both first-time events. I'm super interested with how they go as well.

My conversation with the trail run director was so interesting, we both get a lot of questions from beginners that we don't contemplate on a regular basis. So it is sometimes hard to know what/how to present topics that appeal to beginners but hit the sweet spot of information, and avoiding info overload. And keep things fun.

Sounds very coo! Can’t wait to hear how it goes!
