Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers), that also benefit some charities with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer (Cheap entry fees mean no t-shirts included.)
So, on the eve of the holiest & happiest day of the Christian year – Easter – with its gift of spiritual rebirth, restoration & sustenance, this race tries to provide for the physical wellness & sustenance of some in our midst.
