"To every (runner) there comes...that special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a special thing uniquely fitted to their talent. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for the race which would be their finest hour" (Winston Churchill, paraphrased)
When a group of trail running buddies decided to host a race in their favorite local mountains, they knew it would have to be as unique as it is challenging. And from our first official 'scouting visit' right up until the securing our final sponsor, the process has exceeded all our expectations! Our objectives have been clear from the start:
1. Offer a top-notch event that would attract both elites and beginners alike.
2. Promote healthy relationships within the community and with nature.
3. Reward participants with tremendous organization, unparalleled scenery, and an unforgettable adventure!
