Wally is our resident salty melonhead. He attends each race, and there is a special challenge made by the race director for charity. He is proud to be the only watermelon on ultrasignup with multiple ultra finishes. He can sometimes have a mouth to him, but just threaten to throw him in the woods or drop him on a rock and he usually shuts up. For Notchview, each full lap is worth $5 to charity, as well as humble bragging rights and a photo op. If Wally beats his lifetime mileage goal of 76 miles, the RD will make an additional donation.
