But the most exciting news is that our very own Jody Marcy raced! He was amazing and after not racing

for 35 years, he ran the course in the low 30’s. I think his best time was 30.6!

We need your help! Everyone there commented on the location, with all great feedback, I feel the turn

out for our event in September should be incredible!

Thank you Jody Marcy and Bob and Linda Picton for coming out to help!
