MESSAGE FROM THE RACE DIRECTOR
Runners,
The race directors are experienced runners who have been competing and organizing races for years. Although we ran numerous marathons; ultra-marathons and trail races remain close to our hearts. Some of our most notable are: Leadville 100, Burning River 100, Oil Creek 100, Tussey Mountain 50, C&O Canal 100, Laurel Highlands Ultra and numerous other ultras and trail races.

We created this race because we have a passion for trail running and helping veterans. Myself and Al are both Army Veterans and we are all members of Team RWB. Join us for a great race and a greater cause….our American Veterans. I promise you will not be disappointed. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for your support.
