Pre-Race Pasta Party Helps Racers/Volunteers Get To Know Each Other, Prepare For Race  Many of the Mt. Wilson Trail Race contestants and volunteers met up in Kersting Court Friday night to enjoy a pre-race pasta dinner and to pre-register for the race.  A dinner of pasta, salad, bread and beverage was available, served in Kersting Court, by the Peppertree Grill. Volunteers served up the food, while other volunteers checked in the racers, providing them with the racers "grab bag" that included their t-shirt, promotional materials from local businesses, and info about the race.  A video produced by Denny Barry Productions was shown, with lots of footage of the trail, and history of the trail and the race, narrated by noted San Gabriel Mountains historian and author John Robinson, with several other locals such as Charlie Bell, Bud Switzer, Caroline Brown and others.   Good job Trail Race Committee, Peppertree Grill and Denny Barry!!   Click on a picture below to see it larger.
