Many thanks to the Goldbelt Mt. Roberts Tramway for sponsoring this year's 23rd annual Mount Roberts Tram Run, held on Saturday, July 24. Mt. Roberts Tramway donated tram passes for volunteers and the 43 runners who participated in this year's run and food and refreshments at the end of the race. The Tramway will add the names of this year's winners, Tristan Knutson-Lombardo and Janeann Twelker, to the winner's trophy that is displayed at the lower tram terminal for all to see. A special thanks to Goldbelt tram manager George Reifenstein for working so diligently with us on race logistics, and tram staff Jim Duncan for accommodating our needs on race day. We really appreciate Goldbelt's participation and without them, this race would not have been a success.
The race could not have happened without the hard work of our volunteers. Thanks to volunteers Neil Slotnick, Jonathan Pollard, Valerie Robinson, Georgia Robinson, Will Robinson, Glenn Haight and Blair Marcotte, who volunteered with registration, timing and getting refreshments ready for the runners at the end of the race. And lastly, thanks to all the runners for participating in this year's tram run and slogging through the mud during the brief window when it quit raining.
