TIPS FOR THE TRAIL - LOOKING FORWARD TO LAKE LAS VEGAS

It's finally spring again! This is my favorite time of year as it means longer days full of sun and warmth.  And of course with the shifting of the seasons, this means it is time to hit the national XTERRA circuits again!

Rachel CThe trail running event I look forward to most in the early season is the XTERRA Lake Las Vegas Trail Run, which is held in conjunction with the XTERRA West Championship Triathlon.  It is the perfect spring get-away.  It is the perfect reason to celebrate a sunny warm weekend with like-minded friends and fierce competition. 

With the Las Vegas airport only 20 minutes away and the Strip less than 30, it is crazy to think that such an amazing desert oasis is so close to the hype and neon lights.  In fact, Lake Las Vegas resort is such a stark contrast to the Strip, it is pretty much on its own planet I like to call Paradise.  The gorgeous Aston MonteLago Village Resort's lush setting acts as the ideal background for the race start, as well as a fabulous home base for a fun filled weekend.

BURGUNDER SETS SIGHTS ON ANOTHER ADVENTUROUS SEASON

Richard Burgunder has never met an XTERRA Trail Run he didn't like. His race resume is proof enough.

Rich BurgunderBurgunder, 32, has already competed in XTERRA Trail Run races in Florida, Hawaii, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Japan over the past five years. He has no intention of slowing down in 2013.

"I plan on racing XTERRA Lake Las Vegas, the XTERRA Colorado Series, the XTERRA Utah Series, Nationals and Worlds," he said. "I might also try to make a couple races in the XTERRA Pocono Series, and the XTERRA Richmond."

If all goes well, he could run in more than a dozen XTERRA Trail Run events in 2013, spanning from Hawaii to Pennsylvania.

"What I like most about traveling to all of these different races is how they always bring new adventures and unique experiences into my life," he said. "I love seeing new things and meeting new people along the way. It's both an exhilarating and fun journey to be part of."

Burgunder is one of the most decorated runners in XTERRA Trail Run history. He has previously won age-group regional championships in New England (2009), Northern Ohio (2011) and Pocono (2011 and 2012). He entered his first XTERRA Trail Run in his then-home state of Pennsylvania in July of 2008 and said he "instantly became hooked."
