Birkie Trail Run & Trek!


Yesterday was the Birkie Trail Run & Trek (www.birkie.org ) Another Fantastic event was put on. We had set a goal of 50 folks representing us Out There yesterday and the number was achieved. That gave us about 5% of the total participants were OUT THERE! A Huge Thanks is given to all of you for those that were there and all of you for supporting us in Getting People Out There! For 2014 we have put the challenge out ~ get 75 folks Out There. We are using our facebook page for much of the correspondence, although we want to let everyone know as many of the folks yesterday do not use FB. In the last hour we have already gotten the first 10 folks to commit. How fast can we get the next 65?

Make sure that you get Out There!

Also each year at the BTR&T We try to have a large showing of folks OUT THERE. Last year we sponsored a Relay team and others Out There Participating. 26 in total. Our goal for the 2013 Event is 50! The Relay Team is full. We will though support other Teams and participants in the events thru Out There Custom Tech Shirts for the events. So far this year we are already at 27 people (as of 4.1.13) Shirts and a good bag are limited to the first 50. So get your registration into the Birkie and let us know ( info@outthereshop.com ) which event you are participating in and that you want to GET OUT THERE.
