Take a run on down to Cortez
The Pueblo to Pueblo run in Cortez will offer some local athletes a chance to get a jump on the running season this April.
The 11-mile run, scheduled to take place April 28, will begin at the Anasazi Heritage Center at 9 a.m. (runners will be bused to the starting line at 8 a.m.) and will follow a downhill track though the Montezuma Valley before ending at the Cortez Cultural Center. A shorter two-mile fun run is also part of the event.
Runners can register before April 25 for $12. After that date, the cost increases to $15. Fee includes a race T-shirt. For more information on the race, call the Cortez Cultural Center at (970) 565-1151.
Take me out to the ball game
Registration for the Yampa Valley Adult Baseball League is under way.
This year the league is hoping to form three to five teams of 15 players each to compete against other teams from the region once a week in Steamboat. Players must be 16 years of age or older.
Early season practice will begin in mid-April and run until mid-May. Games will be played on Friday evenings in Steamboat. For more information, contact Tommy Larson at 879-2706 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings set to get balls rolling
The Parks and Recreational Services Department will hold mandatory organizational meetings for softball and soccer on April 17.
The softball meeting will take place at the Steamboat Community Center at 5:30 p.m. and the soccer meeting will follow at 6:30 p.m
Both meetings will cover the basics of the leagues, including league fees, park users fees and any general rule changes. Schedules will also be discussed at this meeting. Team captains should plan on attending these meetings as well as players who are looking to join a current team.
