  1. More data: Only 61% of 5k competitors and 66% of 10k competitors provided age data during registration, so this data is a little incomplete. And I struggle a little with how best to show this while both keeping it anonymous and making it so you can see how you fared within your own age group. Here's my best efforts - let me know if you have any better ideas!
  2. While we're waiting on picture processing, I figured I'd start sharing data: We had 167 total competitors over the weekend: 87 for the 5k and 80 for the 10k. 61 of those were Military (31 5k and 30 10k), and 8 were ladies (3 5k and 5 10k). 90% of the 5k people ran Race Class and 10% ran Combat Class, while 85% of the 10k runners went Race Class and 15% went Combat Class. We had people from 20 different states represented. The below map shows which states - the bigger the dot, the more people came from that state.
  3. Dang. That should have been "long" guns on slings. By the end of the day they feel like log guns though.
  4. This will be my first year shooting (and working) this match too - I'm looking forward to it! But I'm also a man without a team right now. I don't suppose there are two people out there crazy enough to join me, are there? Fair warning: I'm the nut that shoots an AR10 and 870 in TacOps when there isn't a Heavy class. I have finally given into the dark side and shoot 9mm - because those 21rd mags are just DREAMY!!!
  5. I just sent an email to all paid competitors with the final match details. Check your spam folders if you don't see it, and if you still can't find it let me know and I'll see what happened. Here's the most important part: Registration is between 6:30am and 7:30am on the morning of the match. You will sign a waiver and randomly draw your start time. If you do not get registered before 7:30am, you will not be allowed to shoot. Be there.
  6. Today's final prize pack comes from Magpul Industries Corp. - who sent almost $1,100.00 worth of 30 rd .223 mags, 25 rd .308 mags, and 21 rd Glock 9mm magazines. I use Magpul exclusively in my AR10 and Glock, and as expected they are flawless! This gives us a grand total of $5,600.00 in prizes for the match - which will be given away in a completely random draw method during the awards ceremony. The prize really is the match itself, but everyone has an equal chance of taking home some great gear provided by our generous sponsors. BE SURE to thank them and help promote their products in return - or they most definitely will not see the benefit of continuing to do this in the future.
  7. Samson Manufacturing donates so much to prize tables across the shooting sports, sometimes I wonder how they stay in business! This match is no exception, with two SXS-LW handguards coming from them. After seeing how well they did for Bryan Ray and Brian Vaught, I bought one for my daughter's M4gery a couple years ago. It went from a 1.5 MOA rifle to a sub-MOA rifle, all while getting lighter and cooler-looking to boot! Who else is running Samson gear, and what do you like about it? https://www.samson-mfg.com/
  8. So we’re a little over a week from match day. I’m guessing several of you are second-guessing yourselves right now. Maybe you didn’t get in as much training as you’d hoped. Maybe you trained your a$$ off and didn’t see the results you wanted to. Maybe you’ve seen all of these crazy hints and promises about what’s to come, and are intimidated as hell about trying to do all of this while a bunch of Run N Gun regulars stand by and watch you. Don’t be. If you signed up and just SHOW UP to start this race, you’re already better than 90% of the shooters out there who stayed home on the couch on match day. If you FINISH, no matter how long it takes you, you’ve won. Trust me – you’ll feel it just as soon as you cross that finish line – and for many days (months?) thereafter. At some point in the course, you will ask yourself: “Why on earth am I here? I’m not ready for this. I don’t belong here.” The dirty little secret I can promise you: EVERYONE asks themselves that at some point. You DO belong here. The satisfaction and self-image you will get from just finishing this course will stay with you forever, and is something no one can ever take away from you. Many people have found matches like these to be a turning point in their lives, and in a year or two you may not even recognize the person you have become. Just remember - for every person you see pass you, there is someone behind you wishing they could keep up with you. Look behind you every so often just to acknowledge how far you’ve come. And before ANYONE judges anyone else as being "too slow, too fat, or too lazy" - bite your tongue and listen to their story first. Across the country at matches like these we've had people recovering from recent strokes, heart attacks, cancer, pregnancy, amputations, and any other issue you can think of; just because "F#$K CANCER", that's why! Give them an encouraging word when you pass them - it really makes a difference. Even better - if you pass someone really struggling on the course: finish your race, set down your gear, and run back out to find that person. You can run beside them and offer them all the words of support and encouragement that you can think of - you just can't physically help them in any way. Let's do this.
  9. I just found out our own Lacey Caroline is not only working her butt off all weekend to RO for you and running her own 10k race - but is bringing her guitar as well. Maybe if you guys are extra nice she will treat you to a mini-concert one night. At the very least - like her FB page and check out her webpage. Even better, buy some stuff from her website! https://www.facebook.com/LaceyCarolineOfficial/?__tn__=%2CdK-R-R&eid=ARDDsx--hJeOzYdC5uACHkISYfeZ9toZYOKdM2aqPQMxz0yXgAfwLF2lhP3V8GGcAU0W4bZln-uyTMmr&fref=mentions https://www.laceycaroline.com/home https://youtu.be/stV7lRE5CTA
  10. Reminder: tomorrow at midnight is the last day to withdraw and receive a 50% refund. ANY WITHDRAWLS AFTER SATURDAY MARCH 2ND AT MIDNIGHT WILL RECEIVE NO REFUND. Still please do withdraw through Practiscore after that if you can't make it though. We have a ton of people on the waitlist who would love to have your spot if you can't be there!
  11. Today's prize pack comes from Vortex Optics. They generously sent FOUR Crossfire Red Dots for a total value of almost $900.00! Be sure to thank them, and post up here if you run a Vortex product to tell everyone what you use and why you like it! http://www.vortexoptics.com/product/crossfire-red-dots-2-moa
  12. Reminder: If you want a t-shirt, you MUST have your order in by 5pm this Friday, March 1st. T-shirts are only being sold online and shipped to you directly. There will be NO t-shirts for sale at the event. Direct link to buy the shirt is here: https://www.shredderlife.com/shop/2019-rockcastle-run-n-gun/
  13. Today's prize table goodness comes courtesy of Nosler. They sent over $600 worth of reloading components, including 500 70gr RDF bullets, 500 85gr RDF bullets, and 500 pieces of .223 brass. I've used their Custom Competition bullets for years in my FAL and AR-10 with great success, but have yet to try the new RDF bullets. Nosler makes good stuff! https://www.nosler.com/rdf-bullet
