Red Dirt 2018 - WOW!

Well, 2018's Red Dirt Ultra has come and gone, but the stories from the race will last a lifetime.  From hip deep water and climbing up slippery hills on hands and feet, our runners experienced a little bit of everything last weekend.  Despite the tough conditions, a high percentage of our runners persevered and our volunteers shined!   It was a wonderful experience all around, and I can't wait to do it again (once I scrub the mud off of everything).  I will be posting a link to the pictures from the event as soon as I compile all of them, but in the meantime, here are some stats you might be interested in:
