The Wascally started out as an informal race among friends who didn't mind running in the HOT summer months in Fresno California. It was and still is all about having fun with your running friends. After two years of organizing this totally informal fun race that started and ended in front of someone's driveway, we had attracted so many people through word of mouth that we needed to upgrade to something bigger. So in 2012 we decided to do it officially so more people could join in on the fun. We teamed up with Kids Kasa Foster Care, a local foster care agency that treats at-risk youth, to not only put together an amazing race, but to help foster children who were headed to college.
