The planning for this year's race brought about an unexpected location obstacle, which we did not anticipate nor have any control over. As we are moving closer to our race date and still don't have a confirmed location, our team decided to move the race date and location. Even though we understand the disappointment our runners might experience, we are extremely excited about all the positives this change will bring about. Stay tuned for exciting updates.
