About the 2022 Race Season
2020 and 2021 presented some challenges to the endurance sports industry. In 2022 we were able to return to more traditional event formats. We want to thank all the athletes and volunteers who supported our events in 2022. We will continue to host safe, fun events that meet any restrictions in place from our health officials and governing bodies. We are hard at work to create safe, fun, and challenging events for 2023.
