On December 24th 2016, we lost a great friend in Alan Mize. This series of races was started to continue to build on what Alan had established and that is camaraderie, friendships, and helping each other in the good times and bad. There are no winners or losers, as we are all joining together to be with each other and remember Alan. You don’t have to run, you can walk, crawl, bike, swim, or if you just want to make a donation and have a shirt and medal as a keepsake to remember Alan. Your entry fee will get you a shirt and medal, and all proceeds will be donated to Alan’s wife and daughter. If you are in the North Carolina area, we are currently working on establishing a place to meet and run in person. If you have any questions feel free to use the contact and send us an email, or send us a tweet.
