Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012 5(: Endurance run to take place this Saturday Food, beer and a bounce house are a few attractions at the Lost Sierra Endurance Run, Sept. 29, the latest event held by the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. Photo submitted James Wilson Sports Reporter The first Lost Sierra 50K Endurance Run will take place this Saturday, Sept. 29, in Graeagle and the Lakes Basin area. The run is another event sponsored by Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. SBTS is the organization responsible for the Downieville Classic, the bi-annual Mountain Epics and the Trail Daze events. With event planning expe- rience, SBTS is set to throw yet another successful event. Many activities and entertain- ment are planned for runners and bystanders alike. The course itself is the main attraction for runners. The course is 32 miles lorg with 6,500 feet of elevation gain. The course starts and ends in downtown Graeagle. After leaving Graeagle, participants will run to Mo- hawk Valley. The course will steer off the highway and con- tinue on a single track route. Runners will climb to the crest of the Sierras, ascending Mount Elwell and Mills Peak. There are 35 lakes along the course for runners to run along and view. There will be seven theme- based aid stations set up along the course, providing water, snacks and medical attention toparticipants. The course ends with a 4,000 foot descent back into Graeagle. Sixty-five percent of the trail is single track, which allows for a more picturesque run. There is also a 23-kilome- ter course available for those who wish to run part of the course. Multiple bailout op- tions are available for those who cannot complete the course. Different events are sched- uled throughout the day to en- tertain spectators and run- ners after finishing. SBTS will barbecue burg- ers, sausages and chicken. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will have a booth as well to serve up its ales. Different businesses and sponsors will set up booths around the Graeagle green, forming a community expo. SBTS is also providing a bounce house for children to play on. Prize drawings and an awards ceremony will take place after all the runners have completed the course. Portland-based band, Lone Madrone, will play several sets throughout the day. Lone Madrone plays a blend of blues, country and rock. Proceeds from the event will go to SBTS's trail mainte- nance program and the Graea- gle Fire Protection District.

FRC offers a Iongboard construction class James Wilson' Sports Reporter Although the annual His- toric Longboard Revival Se- ries is still months away, longboard skiing enthusiasts are gearing up to ready them- selves for the season. One way participants are getting ready is by making their long- boards. Luckily, Feather River Col- lege will offer a class on long- board construction, so partici- pants do not have to build skis blindly. The class meets Tuesday evenings between Oct. 9 and Jan. 8. Local construction wizard Chris Murray will teach the class at the Quincy High School woodshop. Participants will learn how to construct longboards from scratch that are suitable for racing. The class begins with a short lecture on tool safety and construction techniques. Each week Murray will show and assist students on each step needed to complete a set of skis. The course costs $100 plus a $20 supply fee. The course fee is required before instruction begins and the supply fee is due on the first day of class. For those interested in reg- istering for the class, contact Connie Litz at 283-0202, ext. 317 or print out the registra- tion form at Submit the registration form and fee payment to the admissions of- fice at FRC.

Feather River College is offering a class this semester for people interested in constructing their own set of Iongboards. Photo submitted CALL A PROFESSIONAL TODAY!
