WHY & WHAT FOR?- The Albany Vet center offers services to our local veterans and active military people. The support they offer is invaluable. Part of the proceeds from this event is donated to them. Our Military Vets need and deserve any and all assistance we can offer them.
Proceeds from 2012 run supply much needed materials to the Albany Vet center.
Water for the center was supplied, Bus tokens, hundreds of dollars of gift cards to help where it was needed. Thank You 2012 participants.
More details..... Testing your endurance is only the beginning. Having fun with friends, family and mud is pretty awesome and the after PARTY promises to be ... well a party. Music, rockin out on a Saturday afternoon, Cold beer and other beverages, food for body and soul (that's the beer). Yup and your not gonna find grandmas music either. This is your party...
OK...We know that Maple Ski Ridge's vertical will not leave you breathless. Elevation, yup we have some... But for what we lack in straight up- we will more than make up for in sheer craziness in "Features"; Mud..water.. ledges..tires(obligatory).. hills..slop and all other types of things for you to go over -thru -around -and under.
We don't think you will be disappointed. But don't be scared! Remember this run is
meant to be fun and to push you to do YOUR best. Never feel that you
have to do something that you're uncomfortable with, - whether it's this
run or anything else in life.
What should you bring???? Unless Great Grams parties, leave her at home. White T shirts that you no longer love are OK. Better yet, your younger sisters/brothers clothes are a great idea... And a towel to dry off. Yup and if you need clothes to party in after...
More info will be posted here as we go. Such as music , how many registrations and pictures of the event in the making. Stay tuned....and sign up now.
