NE Spahtens Training / Race Weekend at Shale Hill


NE Spahtens are invited to attend an EPIC WEEKEND OF TRAINING & RACING at Shale Hill on July 26th and 27th...an Obstacle Racer's paradise!  Join us for a day, or the whole weekend.  We've put together an itinerary that you'll not want to miss!

SATURDAY, JULY 26TH @ 12:30pm - TRAINING DAY $35.00

Arrive at your leisure in the morning and then join your friends for a guided run around Shale Hill's 5K or 10K obtacle courses at 12:30pm.  Rob and Jill Butler will be on hand to help you check in and sign waivers.  Rob, and his crew, will then take you out on his personally designed and built obstacle course where he'll show you all the tricks you need to know to excell at OC Racing.  We have over 70 obstacles & challenges on 150 acres in the beautiful Champlain Valley of Western Vermont!  Check us out at www.shalehilladventure.com for more details.

**  If you have a training pass for Shale Hill, this is a great time to use it!  If not, we're offering the guided course run for only $35 on Saturday!!  

***  If you have a training pass you would like to redeem, please bring it with you to turn in on Saturday.  When you register, you do "NOT" have to select a "Training Day" option as you already have a credit with your coupon.  Just select either the 5K or 10K option for Sunday if you plan on racing after your training day on Saturday.

After your day of training, head back to your lodging, get cleaned up and, if weather permits (fingers crossed), head back to Jill & Rob's at Shale Hill for a bonfire party and pot-luck supper around 6pm.  We'll provide the grill and the bonfire.  Very casual...keep it easy and simple!  Bring a chair and your choice of protein for the grill.  If you'd like to bring a side-dish earlier that day, we'll be happy to hold it for you at the house and provide refrigeration or coolers of ice if need be.  We have a nearby village store where you can buy some things, or you can swing by the Shaw's supermarket in Fair Haven on your way to SH.  BYOB and party the night away :-)

SUNDAY, JULY 27 at 10:00am - NES RACE DAY $50.00

Put on your game face and let's race!!  We'll be hosting a race just for "you" with a "not-too-early" start time at 10am.  The course will be marked, you will be timed, and the finish line will be stocked with Thomas Dairy Chocolate Milk, bananas and 3 water stations on the course.  Cool swag for everyone!!!  $50 entry fee.

BOTH DAYS....ONLY $85.00!!!  WHAT A DEAL!
