The Friends of the Little Miami State Park (FLMSP) would like to host its first annual Little Miami Trail Relay Race in the fall of 2013. 


This would be a 42-mile relay race from Xenia to Loveland with 3-400 runners, followed by an awards ceremony, food, drinks, and music at Loveland's Nisbet Park. As our signature annual event, Bob Roncker of the Running Spot has advised us that we could raise $10K or more --- net of expenses. Bob has sponsored and run many such races over the years.


However, such an event requires lots and lots of volunteers, e.g. promotion, organization, recruitment of sponsors, race logistics, parking, intersection traffic control, food, t-shirts, water, scoring, awards, etc.


Therefore, before we do any more planning, we need to assess whether we can recruit enough volunteers to stage such an event --- we need a total of at least 50 volunteers.


Today is Monday August 27. By next Friday September 7, please send an email to indicating your level of interest in volunteering for either a) pre-race promotion, organizing, and recruiting or b) race-day --- shifts will be 3 hours.


With enough people willing to volunteer, we'll continue our planning process and present those plans at upcoming monthly meetings.


With your help we can make the Little Miami Trail Relay Race a reality!
