I want to say thanks to Al and Jeff for helping mark the trail and all of the general support. Also thanks to Bruce Brown for allowing me to use some of his race materials to mark the course. It made a big difference and made me feel a lot better about making sure that no one got lost.
Thanks to the Hanser family for coming down and giving their support as well as those kids and their parents/family that drove them all that way for a 5 mile loop :)
Next year, this event will be moved back into town and back onto the Center Trails. It couldn't be done there this year due to the J11 trail construct/destruction. I'm sure that it will be back on track and a much bigger success next year.
Enjoy the pics and video from the day.

This video of Hannah shows some of the beauty of the lake trail. It also shows how good of a trail this is for kids.
This video is of Maddie, notice how she doesn't allow me to pass.
She always has to be at the front.
