No Fun Run Thursday, May 25

Sorry for the late notice on this, but we will NOT be holding a fun run on Thursday, May 25 at Castlewood State Park. We were truly hoping to make this happen, but one of our main directives with our races is to do no harm to the trails. That’s simply not possible to do at this point at the park.

Wish we could have made this happen, but it’s just not in the cards.

See everyone in August. We’ll post updates as we get closer to race days.

We will not be able to race this Thursday, May 4. For…
