Todd Hoke, in his letter in the May 20 issue ["Put Some Spring in Your Step"], lamented that there were so few runners in the Green Cove 10-mile race on April 25. He wondered where were all the runners.
The answer is simple. There were seven races in the area on that date. There were races in Spruce Pine, Black Mountain, Lake Lure, Green Cove, Arden, Sylva and Mars Hill.
If race directors schedule their races without regard to the local racing scene, they will continue to have low turnouts at their events.
