Great race yesterday. Today’s recovery, a 30 mile, 2000 feet bike ride to get ready for Seneca.

USA Track & Field (USATF) is the governing body of (in simple terms) running in the USA. It oversees the selection of our Olympic Team, National Championships, and countless other components of promoting both recreational and competitive athletics, including course measurement and certification.

Did you know that your very own AREEP, based right here in the Capital District, recently developed and launched the exclusive online platform that is used across the country for the certification of the courses of over 2,000 races each year?

As many of you know, AREEP is a full-scale event timing and production company, but did you know that a large part of our operation is software development and technology?

In the past year, we've provided software to USATF, the U.S. Military, as well as Fortune 500 Companies. We appreciate their trust in us and the opportunity to continue to work nationally to promote the reach of what we can do here at home.

On November 2, we had the honor of serving our U.S. Army at the Fort Bragg Family and MWR 10 Miler. They also produce and have us time and emcee/DJ the All American Marathon every March. We love working with them, and this year was extra fun with the addition of the Battle of the Brigades.

Points were awarded based on pace, push-ups, and sit-ups -- and it made for one heck of a fun event! Check it out below.

2019 Escarpment Trail Run

Last weekend we timed perhaps the most logistically difficult event we work all year, the Escarpment Trail Run. It's a 30K race through the Catskill Mountains, 100% on the Escarpment Trail. Some of our timers hike for hours carrying heavy equipment to capture the splits from the course, climbing boulders to access their locations. While we didn't get much video on the course, if you're looking for something crazy to strive for, consider joining us in 2020!

Perhaps the longest running mountain race anywhere, the 43rd Annual ETR was on a humid day pushing 90 degrees. Here's a quick look at the event. This year's ...

You. Your body. Crossing a finish line. AREEP cheering you into the finish line! If you're thinking about 13.1M or 26.2M, make the choice and join us! Entry fees go up tomorrow!
