The 2017 RACE HAS BEEN CANCELED!

We will be making some tweaks to the race format to make it run smoother and ensure an enjoyable time for all. Registration will open in early 2018. Make sure to sign up for the newsletter to ensure you are notified when we open registration and take advantage of early registration!
