Thanks to Team Kiwi's Tim, Tom, and Lauren for a great season opener on U of M's North Campus. Beautiful running weather, fun checkpoint locations, and interesting route choices! Preliminary results are here: https://www.attackpoint.org/eventdetail.jsp/event_42321 We noticed the two finish punches weren't synced, so we are working on crediting affected people by that 60-70 seconds or so. See you in a few weeks on 10/7 for the debut of Sandra Richardson Park!

You choose your route - climb the hill or go around. Jump the stream or use a log. Run for the win or go for an afternoon hike - it's up to you!

Many of our events have beginner clinics - check the events page.
