4) The PASTA FEED is returning to bib pickup on July 3! Details to come on MMR website. Proceeds benefit the Seward High School Athletic Booster Club.

5) COURSE INFO: The mountain is constantly changing; currently be aware of snow covering the creek that will rot out sooner than later! Do your homework in person and by watching these short VIDEOS from the mountain.

6) Remember, FIRST-TIME RACERS must complete the ENTIRE course in training before bib pickup and sign a statement they have done so.

Stay tuned for upcoming messages and best wishes for your training!
