RACE PURPOSE (OUR CAUSE)

Our fundraising goals for 2022 will be to continue the work and bring the dream alive of Rob Hasse, who was working on the revitalization of the Mary Alice Park trail system.

Rob was part of the host Forsyth Central High School’s XC booster club, and was instrumental in making the 2014 all county XC meet possible at Mary Alice Park. They were able to clean up and repair enough of the trail network to produce a very successful meet, however a lot of work needs to be completed. Unfortunately, Rob passed away suddenly in March of 2016 before the completion of this project. Now the torch has been passed to us. Rob’s goal was to have all the old trails clean and useable again for the public, and to create a much-needed training area for all the schools in the county.

Funds raised from this event be applied toward materials, labor and rental equipment needed to complete this project.

Post Race:

Awards for Overalls, Masters and age group medals 1st, 2nd and 3rd starting at age 10 and under.

DIE CAST FINISHING MEDALS FOR ALL RACE PARTICIPANTS.
