Due to professional differences, we (Tim L. and Tim S.) will no longer work for Pacific Coast Trail Runs following the 12/31 event at Rodeo Beach. Our goal is to put on well supported, organized and fun races for everyone. Sadly, we don't feel that is possible given the current situation within PCTR. We apologize for the confusion and frustration over the past few months regarding refunds and other money owed. However, at this point there is very little we can do to rectify the situation. We do not have access to the funds that were collected for any of the five cancelled events (events cancelled well before we were asked to help with PCTR last month) and therefore not capable of refunding entry fees. At this point, we can only encourage those that are owed money to continue to try and recoup the money they are owed.
The two of us have everything in place (shirts, awards, permits, etc) to hold a super Rodeo Beach race event on Dec 31st and are committed to putting on the event for runners who have paid entry fees. We do not wish to see any further events cancelled, so we'll be out there and we hope to see everyone who has registered (and then some) come out for what is bound to be a great day in the Marin Headlands.
We don't know what the future of PCTR holds but we (the "Tims") will begin holding events with our own event management company in 2012. Our events will include distances from 10k to 100 miles, all on the beautiful trails you've grown to love over the years (and perhaps some you have yet to experience).
For PCTR related inquiries please continue to try the firstname.lastname@example.org email. If you wish to contact either of us, for any reason, please do so via our personal email addresses: email@example.com (Tim L) or firstname.lastname@example.org (Tim S).
And we apologize if you're one of the few who doesn't want to read this. There's a lot of warranted concern and uncertainty and we wanted to at least reassure the few hundred folks registered for the Rodeo Beach event that we will be putting it on.
Look for a release of the event dates on inisdetrail.com soon.
In the meantime, "like" ITR on Facebook - a good way to keep up on announcements. http://www.facebook.com/InsideTrail
