First Official Entrant --- RBC 50K on Sept 30, 2006
Mark this date!!!...Edward Carlson of Colorado Springs, Colorado; today becomes the first official entrant in the Russell B. Cheney 50K & Birthday Celebration to be held on Sept 30, 2006 here in the First State. Sir Edward is indeed the defending champion of Fall Slug event, and no doubt, will be anxious to retain that title. Now, just 12 days from Fattest Butt; and I am very excited about this race. We have a good field coming into Central Delaware, and weather is projected to be mild 10-12 days out. We also have potentially the largest starting Slug Fatt Butt in history with 14 runners registered. In 1993, we registered 14 also, but an aid station volunteer---Fabulous Flyin' Phil---jumped into the race, and finished just ahead of the 0-dark thirty cutoff....for a total of 15 finishers. OK all you Slugs.....Keep your fingers/toes crossed. happy days, john.
