Tanks Alot/Ron Herzog 50k

Granite Falls, Washington
November 12, 2005

Welcome to fall in the great Pacific NW. After some deliberation, it has
been decided that in this 13th year of Tanks Alot/Ron Herzog 50K, we
could not let the memory of Ron Herzog pass nor stop this great
tradition that Chris Ralph has bestowed upon us for many years. In that
respect, we'd like to announce that both races will occur as it has in
the past. Since Chris has been focusing on the Plain 100 and other
ventures, the new Race Directors will consist of Franklin Wood and Roger
Michel . This has been Chris' baby for so long so not much will change
in terms of the course route. The inevitable TANK TRAPS will be there to
greet each and every racer...for some twice.

So welcome to the 13th running of the Tanks Alot/Ron Herzog 50K. We look
forward to seeing some of the staple racers who were there in the
beginning as well as those new to ultrarunning. Please go to
www.mergeo.com/meridian/tanksalot/default.html for race information, an
entry form, course profiles, race stories, etc. Updates will be posted
on the website in RED and email sent ONLY to those who have inquired,
chosen to be updated or are on the Racer List. Nobody likes spam.

If you are not familiar with what Tank Traps are, ask around, read Race
Stories or even better, come experience it firsthand. You'll never see
ultrarunning quite the same afterwards.

Run to compete. Run to push your physical limits. Run to be free. Run
for the scenery. Run for fun. Just run...TANKS ALOT.
