    Does anyone know when they are going to announce what cities they are going to have the 2010 Livestrong Challenge's in?

    Usually it's in January, but this past round I think they announced it in November and registration opened in December.

    This year's registration opened on 12/1, with a discount for registering on that day.

    I saw a post somewhere that they would be announcing the cities during the Austin weekend (Oct 23-25), but not to expect many changes. I think because the economy makes it difficult for non-profits, they want to focus on strengthening existing challenge city participation instead of adding new cities.

    The forecast for tomorrow's ride in Austin is partly cloudy with a high of 79 and 10 mph winds. Why would you want to go anywhere else? Just plan on coming to Austin next year. We will make it worth the trip.

    I did the Austin ride today and this morning, as we were waiting in line, the MC announced the cities and dates for next year. The cities are the same, but I don't remember all of the dates. The only one I paid attention to was Austin, and it is practically the exact same day as this year -- 10/24 rather than 10/25.

    Per an e-mail from Rip Scott, the mentor for Region 2, the 2010 LiveStrong Challenge activities in Philly will be split between two days. The walking / running events will be held on Saturday, August 21. The cycling events will be held on Sunday August 22.

    I think this is a great idea. It should help with the traffic and parking congestion. I'd also like to volunteer to help on Saturday. (Of course I could have volunteered for Saturday this year; I'm just going on the record now so I'll have more incentive to follow through next year!)

    From the LAF:

    • Seattle, WA: June 20
    • San Jose, CA: July 11
    • Philly, PA: August 22
    • Austin, TX: October 23-24


    Registration opens December 1, 2009.

    They also state that, "Event format will not be consistent across all cities for 2010."

    Apparently they're eliminating the 5k run/walk from the San Jose Challenge. I thought that was interesting since it seemed like half of the participants were 5k people.

    I've already started planning for next year. Training of course (hoping to do a longer ride instead of the wimpy short one now that I have a road bike), but also trying to recruit people at work for a team.
