Who’s In for the BLS Indoor 20k?

Who saw this week’s announcement that registration is now open for the Badgerland Striders new Indoor 20k at the Pettit National Ice Center??

We’re mega stoked about this race! First off, it’s a 20k (about 45 laps), which is an unusual distance in this area so a great opportunity to race something different. Second, what’s not to love about a course that’s pancake flat with guaranteed 50 degree temps and no rain, snow or ice? Third, this is a perfect opportunity to run on the new indoor track and a great way to train for January’s Indoor Marathon races.

Here are the 20k race details, according to the BLS website:

Date: Sunday, Dec. 8

Time: Heat 1: 8:30 a.m. (2 hour time limit); Heat 2: 11:00 a.m. (3 hour time limit)

So, who’s already already signed up or planning to sign up? We have the feeling this one is going to fill fast …
