What you need for Run Off the Grid 2015


Hey everyone,
Just a quick note to follow up on a few items to remember for Run Off the Grid on Satuday.
Please bring a lunch for yourself.  Race organizers are not providing a lunch this year.  Due to logistics it has been hit or miss with lunches  in the past and they have decided to save the logistical issues this year.  As always there will be loads of snacks at the checkpoints.
