Description

We are low-key, low-frills, high-fun, and high-camaraderie. No swag, no awards, and no whinning! We will ask everyone to bring some food to share at the aid station and will supplement with some other treats and Tailwind Endurance Fuel.

Be sure to bring bottle to carry hydration.

Course Description
