Our race director, Steve Hewitt, is holding an 8k race this coming Saturday, March 14th in Kanawha State Forest. It is called the Leprechaun Dash and features a cool incentive to beat a pace-setter who plays the Leprechaun. Registration is available race morning at Kanawha State Forest. Meet at the pool parking lot to register. More information can be found at www.aptiming.com; search for "Leprechaun Dash".
This is a great trail running event for those looking to beat the winter blues and usher in a bright and healthy spring.
