Annual Up The Hill Race/All-Staff Party, August 8

It’s almost time to lace up your running shoes and pump up your bicycle tires for the annual Up the Hill Race!  

The annual Up The Hill Race and all-staff party will be on Friday, August 8 at the Mesa Lab. The race starts at 3 p.m. on the road to the Mesa Lab.  It is about a mile race with a significant vertical climb.  We will have a running race and bike race this year.  The top three fastest times for men and for women will win race medals and bragging rights.  Sign up today at

If racing is not your cup of tea, the EAC is still looking for volunteers to help time the runners and to staff the race.  To volunteer, please contact Kristen Alipit at ext. 1661. Volunteer training will be held at 1 p.m. on Aug. 8.  

After the race, we will have the last summer all staff party on the tree terrace at the Mesa Lab.  Join us for cold beverages, appetizers, a bluegrass jam session, and social time with your colleagues.  Families are welcome to attend.    

Free! -  Mini bike tune-ups will be available at the party (4PM - 6PM), so bring your bike if you’d like some free maintenance to keep it in good condition.

New! - Department Participation Contest!  The department with the highest percentage of participants at the party will win a happy hour of their very own planned by the EAC.  Be sure to bring your colleagues and register to win!
