Sunday, 5/19, is the 26th running of the Tilden Tough Ten, a footrace sponsored by Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders that takes place on the Nimitz pathway/Mizue Trail, at Inspiration Point. Each year, the race is supported by a bicycle brigade, volunteers who ride their bikes to fixed points along the paved trail and hold out water bottles to the runners. The course is exposed and on warm days can become brutally hot.
If you have a free morning we could use your help out on the course. Hours are from 7:15 a.m. until approximately noon. Coffee and snacks, plus a dri-fit shirt are offered to all volunteers. Course captains this year are Alan Sklansky and Deb Georges. The TTT, as it is called, is one of the older, more historic races in our area. Runners compete to beat the clock in order to win coveted T-shirts marking their times. It is inspiring to watch and a gratifying event to support.
