July 12 Update: All the races are now sold out!
August 28 Update: Maintenance work required us to re-route the course around the dam. Instead of doubling back all the way to the dam, the course now crosses the river and then goes up the hill to the dam. The start and finish line will remain the same. Click on the map images below to see the changes.
