OUR LIFESTYLE

Some of us race to get faster and stronger. Some to get healthy and fit. Some to lose weight. Others just to get to the finish line. Some of us race because how it makes us feel. Some to have fun and hang with our friends. Some race to give back to an important local charity. Some race in honor of someone we love or someone we have lost.

Regardless of your WHY, we are all united on a mission to improve our own health and fitness while building our community, giving back and improving the lives of those in need. We operate from a belief system that if we all give a little it adds up to a whole lot! Together, collectively we can achieve the extraordinary!
