Since flows have been so high across the region and it just won't stop snowing, Team Fly-Swatter decided to focus their efforts on something different--running. The run amuck is a 5 mile relay race (as part of the Reno River Festival) that starts in downtown Reno and continues through Idlewild Park where there are a series of obstacles including hop-scotch, hay bales, a slip and slide, and of course the the infamous mud pit, after completing (and in some cases surviving) this phase of the run, you return downtown. Costumes are mandatory and as a couple of trout bums we had no other options than to represent our sport by wearing waders. This race is truly one of Reno's best events and the River Festival itself includes a variety of great vendors from across the region. We'll see you down there next year.
