“Each year this race grows. We truly have something for everybody – there are lots of age-group winners for the recreational runners, we offer a lot of fun on the course, but we also have a super-fast course where competitive racers can chase PR’s,” said Nate Gibson, LRAH Chair. “Regardless of the reason folks ran – they can be assured they made a difference in our community by helping provide necessities to people in need.”
