This is a fun event at the end of the year- Unfortunately it was canceled last year due to bad weather. In 2017 we had 10 wheel chair athletes in a win time of 53 minutes. The course is flat with some minor grades and smooth roads. A small portion of the coarse is on a trail along side the river. Its a fun way to finish the year.  Event is organized by Gogo running.
