We all know that when the temperature goes up, the opportunities to gather for a race go down. So we decided to invite all our friends, and our soon-to-be friends, to get together and celebrate Christmas in July with a 6-hour endurance race!! But don’t worry, you can come for 30 minutes, 3-hours or stay for the entirety because this race is absolutely free!! We are, however, accepting donations to benefit Operation Christmas Child. You can donate a few dollars or pack your own shoebox and bring to the race. Details can be found at: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/
The race begins at 6:00 a.m. on July 18th and ends at 12:00 p.m. On this shaded 6 mile crushed gravel loop (we will also have a 3-mile loop option) that runs alongside the Big Piney River just off Old Route 66 , there will be one fully stocked aid station and one with water only so be sure to bring a portable hydration device. Plan to stay afterwards and cool off in the water!
A prize will be given for the best costume and for the overall male and female finishers (those with the most miles). And let’s not forget the best prize. For those opting for the longer loop, there will be a prize given to the Queen and King of “the hill”, aka the gargantuan hill at the turnaround - the person traversing it the most times gains our respect and a special surprise.
