The Postcard Deluge May Commence!

As is roughly tradition... around the holiday season the annual postcard mailing is about to open up!

So... here is the low-down.

To gain entrance into Goodhue and Wabasha County's best gravel road event, you first must send in a postcard to Jake Huot. They must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2012. His info is as follows:

Ragnarok 105 c/o
Jacob Huot
1079 Putnam Ave.
Red Wing, MN 55066
  • One entry per card (tandem entries should have both names on one card).
  • 18 yo or older please.
  • Please include your name, email address, m/f (or tandem)
  • Any card that does not include this info will be tossed.
Just like last year we will be capping the race at 105 entries. Sorry, but it's how we roll. After the first few days of the new year (to allow for the last cards to get in) we will draw cards at random. The roster will be posted as soon as it is finalized. We will then draw all of the cards to set up the reserves. Invariably quite a few folks will drop out, so quite a few people on the reserves will get in.

The race next year will be on April 14th, 2012. Around 105 miles (maybe a bit more). You can receive outside support at the first and second checkpoints (Zumbro Falls, and Lake City). You'll have roughly 12 hours to complete the course.

I think that's about it.... Jake... Larry... post up if I forgot anything...
