The Loop Trail Run – Rogue Trail Series #2 – 2011 Results

On April 10th, race #2 of the fast and fun Rogue Trail Series took place on the rocky and technical trails snuggled within oak and juniper forests along Lake Austin. We are talking about the Emma Long park adventure called The Loop. The series continues with 30 km and 10 km distances.

172 rock lovin’ trail runners played on the 10 km course.

Unfortunately there are no results for the 30 km race so I can’t determine the number of racers. I click on the 30k results link and I get nothing?? It appears I did not purchase the special Rogue 30k results viewing glasses. If anyone has a pair I could borrow, please let me know. 🙂

Course

Based off the The Maze times, The Loop is definitely a tougher course.

The park trail includes loose limestone to promote light-happy feet and some stair-step climbs and descents that always up the fun factor.

The 10 km is one loop.

The 30 km is ??.

    I have been there and I see nothing when I click on the 30k link…on two different computers and three different browsers. What am I missing?? You can see the 30k results?

    David,
    I’m seeing the same issue that you are seeing.
    It used to work as I saw my 30k results.

    Hey Ed – It is somewhat comforting to know that I am not the only one that can’t see the results. Thanks for sharing. Not sure what is going on. Solar flare?? 🙂

    Hey, the results were a little late to show because they had to be adjusted:
