After The Leaves Have Fallen Awards

After The Leaves Have Fallen Half Marathon / Josh Feldt Memorial Run is coming up on November 8th, 2015.

For the past few years the awards at After The Leaves Have Fallen has been bread from Panera. Last year I decided to make up some little cards to go along with the bread. This year I wanted to go a bit further and see how crafty I could get. Overall Male Award

After much trial and error here is the first final Award for the race this year. They measure about 5.6″ x 4.2″ x .25″. They are made of poplar wood. I use a technique to transfer a photo I took at Lake Awosting to the wood. The paper is then removed and I use a laser burning machine to burn the tree image and words onto the wood. Finally it’s all covered with a layer of protection. These are 100% unique and handmade by me. There will be Awards for the Overall Male & Female as well as 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Male and Female in the following age groups: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & Over.

We currently have 29 people registered with 71 days to go. There is a cap of 350 registrants as parking is tight at Lake Minnewaska.

Summer Series #1 & #2 Photos by Charlotte Kopp

Charlotte has provided links to the pictures she’s taken at the 1st and 2nd races in the series.

Charlotte does an amazing job with photos and does it out of the goodness of her heart. If you see her at a race give her a big thanks…she deserves it. I know how much time it takes to go through and edit pictures.
