2016 Officers at Large

It is my pleasure to announce the Officers at Large who will be joining the board for 2016. These three members will advise the elected officers, serve as the voice of members, and take on special projects throughout the year. Chikara Omine served as treasurer for five years; he will help mentor our new treasurer, Christine Clark, to ensure a smooth transition. Tony Nguyen will continue to serve as our Social Media Coordinator. As the nehttps://dserunners.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/placeholder-vertical-1.jpgt member of the board, Jeorgina Martinez will bring a new point of view as she gets a peek behind the scenes of what it takes to run DSE and host over 40 races a year.

Race Schedule Changes

An updated print schedule is now available on our website with the following changes:

Double Dipsea Volunteer Captains

Race day will be here before we know it. We are once again partnering with Bracen Racing to help us produce this race, and our part of the partnership is providing enough volunteers to ensure a successful race. We need Volunteer Captains to head up the various aid station and course monitor locations, and help recruit your friends to join you. Rumor has it there may be a best themed aid station contest.

Double Dipsea Early Registration

If you filled out the early registration interest form and met the criteria, you will receive a link to register via email this week. You must follow the instructions and register before regular registration opens and the race sells out. If you are not able to get one of these spots, you will still be able to try again during regular registration on Tuesday, March 15 at noon, and Saturday, March 19 at 3:00pm.

Awards Criteria Clarifications

While preparing awards for the 2016 Gala, we came across several discrepancies in the awards criteria listed on our website (https://dserunners.com/awards/awards-criteria/). We interpreted them as well as we could, but wanted to take some time after to simplify some of the criteria and clarify ones that we received feedback about. We’ve updated the website to be more clear and wanted to point out some of the key points:
