Walking through a tree lined arch to register, the spiritual melodies of an American Indian flutist (Albert Tenaya is a brilliant flutist) surrounded you, leading you through a histroic journey where man and nature once walked and danced along the same path.
And in the background, an old friend waited patiently for us to arrive.

After visiting various stalls to obtain pledges to reduce trash (if you want to pledge and have your name on a tyre, see the Pledges link), Ecuder playfully rolled over to the Barrel Room and persuaded Tyson to prove he was the Fastest Tyre Dragging Mixer of the West.
We had to slow down the video because Tyson was sooo fast.
- refusing single use "stuff" (like coffee cups, take out containers, wrapping paper)
- reusing "stuff"
- repairing "stuff"
- use organisations like freecycle and freegle
He reminded runners about the poor volunteers who have to scrap off gel packs off the road when they are dropped anywhere and everywhere and leak their yucky goo onto the road.
Note: there are a number of runners who owe $5 to the organisation's charity as well as to Earthwatch for slowing us down to pick up gel packs off the road.
Thank you everyone who signed and pledged to reduce their trash. Collectively we can change our disposable society's habits.
Let's do it!
(Registration shwag: light weight track top + bottle of wine + lots of other eats + glass of wine)
