Thoughts by Wanderers:
Corbin Evans: “As a first time trail race runner AND finisher I was overwhelmed with the experience. How could running be any more fun?! I was so impressed with the organization of the race and the friendliness of the competition. The race gave me a new appreciation for hills and how to train for them. I have listened to my Dad talk over the last few years about this trail racing thing and I am only sorry I didn’t get involved sooner. I can’t wait for the next one.”
Chris Moore: “It’s darn nice to be back (running that is)“
Polly Jansen: “Perhaps the most notable happenings were after the race when Noah A.’s car had to be towed out of the mud & we found Bob’s key also stuck in the mud! Times are never dull for the Wanderers!“
