The cost is expensive but with what you are getting for the cost I completely understand the price.

Unforgettable experience!

Thanks for an amazing experience! My kids, both the younger ones and the teens had fun at kids camp. My hubby & I had an unforgettable experience running trails. And everything was so well organized. Can't wait to do it again!

Great race... few more hills than I expected, but after the "shower" around 6am everything else was awesome. Thanks!
