Description of the Race
The Andalé Racing Club or me, Coach Ben, puts on a race every month at Michael Gunn Park at Platte Meadows in Platte County, Missouri. You can sign up for one race, two races, three races, six races, whatever. I will have them available as "add ons".
The races are on the second Saturday of every month of 2023 so we have seven races left. The courses change every month. Andalé Racing Club is proud to support the USATF-MUT Youth Trail movement, providing young runners a discount at trail and mountain races. Runners eighteen and under can race at Andalé Racing Club events for free.
Here's the deal. I need more adults to run my races. The entry fees paid by the adults fund the ability to do this free for kids. You get a medal, you get a shirt, supported and staffed aid station, photos, and finish line food. Not to mention I've added bubbles. Oh yes...bubbles.
The code for anyone under 18 to register with a 100% discount is FREE18

100% Trail Race – “So what does that mean Coach Ben?” I’m glad you asked. It’s sort of a hybrid between single track on grass, rough grass, long grass, single track in the woods, two small water crossing you can jump, crushed limestone/gravel trail, dirt, and lots of pokey things sticking out of the ground. It’s not easy but it’s fun and it has sections you can really flow on. Uneven surfaces, questionable footing, it’s fantastic.
