We've partnered with the town of Washington Island to try and make some big improvements to Gislason Beach Park (which is where we camp and race each year). It's been a forever goal of mine to make a lasting positive impact on this place and stamp our name on it :). We've got our opportunity now! Our vision includes three big projects that we will try to fund over the next 5 years. Mammoth and the Washington Island Ultra have committed to donating $4,000 each year to the parks dept with the agreement that all the money goes to our Gislason Beach project. Anything you can do to help makes a HUGE impact and helps us reach our goals faster as we work to make these improvements to the park. You already know the Island is a beautiful and peaceful place that has given us years of memories and fun times. We hope with a little hard work and some cash, we can make improvements to this park so other people can come experience the island and fall in love with it just like we all have.

Project 1: Pave the gravel parking areas. This will make a HUGE difference for our race. No more walking on gravel to the water, no more being pushed up against the road next to cars that fly by. No more bike / run turnaround in the middle of the road! Overall this project greatly improves the safety of the event for us and everyone else. Plus, it will make the park look much more appealing to visitors of the Island.

Project 2: Improve the beach area. The beach area at Gislason has seen some wear and tear over the years. As you know, the water is absolutely beautiful and we want to make sure folks have a beautiful area to relax and enjoy the views. This area is often overgrown, flooded and the "beach" that once was has disappeared. We want to regrade the area to avoid all the flooding, landscape the area to make it look more appealing to visitors and install new rocking chairs to face the water.

Project 3: Build a deck off the Red Barn. This project would serve as a nice place to serve food from, do our athlete meetings and hand out awards after the race. Really the main vision for this deck would be another nice place to have concerts in the park. There are TONS of musicians who live on the island and shows are often played inside the red barn. How cool would it be build a nice deck that allows for room to put on an outdoor show. We've seen how beautiful the stars are at night - now add some good music and a few drinks overlooking the water... Yea, sign me up for that!

Thank you in advance for helping us stamp the Washington Island Ultra name into the history of this beautiful place.
