No “Fun Run” Trail Series This Week… But Stay Tuned for Next Week!

While Castlewood State Park has finally re-opened, there is still a lot of work being done around the park. And while we know the upper trails are in great shape, there are still a lot of issues with the lower grounds including where we stage our race headquarters.

So, we will NOT be holding a run this evening, Thursday, May 18.

However, we do expect to host a fun run next week, Thursday, May 25, barring any unforeseen issues, for everyone registered for the postponed 2017 FITS Socks Trail Run Series. More information will be sent out early next week with details.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
