Wow, what a day… Ralston Creek Trail is NOT an easy course,
Boy, I’m not sure many of us would have chosen those temps,
And holy smokes… you guys have been busy this winter, haven’t you?
You should all be very proud of yourselves for not letting one of the windiest winters in recent memory keep you
Lorinda Bodman: Off season… What off season? You’re a SUPER STAR!

Without YOU, these events simply wouldn’t be possible. From event prep to packet pick-up, and from course marshals to meal service, there are a variety of ways you can help. There’s no experience necessary, but space is limited so please let us know you’re available right away! Students: Earn those credits in the most fun way possible! Groups: Tired of those bake sales & car washes? We are happy to be a part of your fundraising efforts! (Donations begin with just 10 volunteers and you need not be an official nonprofit.)
