The Grills Trail Run on the morning of Saturday 28 October 2023 is not your regular race we have supported in the past. This race is 2 courses, a 10 K and a 10mi, through the woods of the Grills Preserve in Bradford, RI. Last year was the first time we supported the race and found it was more challenging than the usual races on roads. Last year’s hams reported enjoying the new challenges and the race participants were happy to have the hams providing that additional piece of mind. Most supporting hams will need to be able to walk short distances and have good portable equipment including antennas. This is an excellent way to improve your emergency communicating skills as well as your equipment.
I am looking for hams that ride off road bicycles for this event to act as SAG. You may also ride to your post on a bicycle if you want, just let me know.
