It looks like the Moonlight Madness 5K/10K that was scheduled this Friday has been cancelled. I spoke with race director Catherine McFeely, who explained that there was very little pre-registration for it, to the point where it was fiscally impossible to get it set up. Apparently as soon as they made the decision to cancel it, interest started picking up, but it was too late to secure the venue, get shirts made, etc. She says full refund checks should be in the mail by this Friday for those who did pre-register, and not to worry, the Rock-n-River races (that they also put on) are definitely still a go for next spring.
The only other event going on this weekend is -

This is a pretty cool-looking obstacle race held up at Sierra-at-Tahoe, with three different distances and difficulty levels based on ski run ratings. The green circle course is 4.1 miles and has 8-10 obstacles, the blue square course is 7 miles with 12-15 obstacles, and the black diamond course 10.9 miles with 20+ obstacles. Wish I could do this one, looks like a blast. Put on by the Tahoe Tri Club.
