Mammoth runners in London, ready to go; Keflezighi, Hastings, Uceny eye medals

July 27, 2012

The track and field portion of the Olympic Games begin Sunday in London and for Mammoth Track Club athletes and their specialty disciplines, the four-year wait is just about over.

Morgan Uceny, in the women’s 1,500 meters, Amy Hastings in the 10,000 meters and marathoner Meb Keflezighi all run on different days, most of them live but some on delayed broadcast.

Former Mammoth Track Club members Ryan Hall and Alistair Cragg, running for Ireland, also will run the marathon, on the final day of the Olympics on Aug. 12.

July 27, 2012

As much as 1.3 inches of rain fell in the Mammoth and Crowley area earlier this week, but it wasn’t enough—and it wasn’t widespread enough—to lessen the fire danger facing the region.

“This rain did moisten the smaller fuels, like small branches, but if you look under any tree, it’s still dry.”

Lemonade stand raises hundreds to save June Mountain

July 27, 2012

But within a few days, the students hand-delivered a $147 check to Rusty Gregory, the CEO of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area.

A few weeks later, they had collected another several hundred dollars, and as of this week, they show no signs of stopping.
