BAUR

BAY AREA ULTRARUNNERS

The No-name Running Club idea germinated in the summer/fall of 1982, leading to a January 23, 1983 meeting. First officers were Dick Collins, President, Bob Vernam, VP, John Buenfil, Treasurer, and Jim Skophammer, Secretary. A name selection meeting took place on March 31, 1983 causing us to lose our no-name designation and become the BAY AREA ULTRARUNNERS.

"The objectives of the club are to organize individuals interested in ultrarunning, to promote ultrarunning activities and events, and to promote fellowship and provide guidance for individuals interested in long distance running."

Over the past 28 years BAUR members have pursued this stated intention with a high degree of energy, enthusiasm and expertise: 1983 races such as the Regional Park 50 miler (forerunner of Firetrails 50), Double Skyline 50k, and the Quadruple Dipsea, the 1984 Gator 24 hour, Ruth Anderson 100Km. All of these races set the stage for many years of successful race promotion, volunteer activities, fellowship, and guidance for the ultrarunner. Current BAUR races:

Ruth Anderson Ultras
Mi-Wok Trail 100k
Ohlone Wilderness 50k
Jim Skophammer 24Hr
Quad Dipsea 28.4m

Unmentioned in early meetings or current literature is our dedication to the principles of volunteerism. We rely totally on friends, members, and families as volunteers needed to carry out our club purpose. By seeking membership in BAUR we hope new members are aware that there is obligation other than participation in races as a runner.
