          Make of this what you will.
          We had worked closely with Chris Grealish for the past two years on a plan for the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department to coordinate the races. This was supposed to happen in 2008, but late in 2007, Chris decided that it would be best if he continue to run the races (knowing what the rental fee was).

By Chris running the races, any money generated can be earmarked for whatever he chooses.
