  • Spots are starting fill up to run the Colonial200 but we still have room for anyone wanting to have an absolute blast (with some running mixed in). It’s time to turn those SCs (soft commits) into HCs (hard commits). If you have been on the fence (or not even considered it yet), now is the time.

    To help your decision making, SpaceMonkey and YHC have assigned runners to legs. Now, you will know exactly how many miles you are committing to when signing up. All you have to say is “I want to be Runner X” (and complete the action items at the end of the pre-blast).
