Come out and join the action on race day. The field is made up of serious runners looking to finish with the best time and also the weekend warriors running for the challenge and, most importantly, the good times. These are the runners that come in elaborate costumes and form teams with team names and logos. All of whom meet up after the race for the party that includes awesome bands, food, beer, and muddy, happy runners. The energy at our race is truly remarkable. Everyone is there to challenge themselves and have fun, and all do!
