The New Duel in the Sun! - Janelle and Dani battle to the finish of the Rochesterfest 1-Mile for Camp Olson! - Great race from two Team R.E.D.  ladies!  *for those keeping score at home, Janelle crossed the finish line first.  - Also, I know the next two to finish had Team R.E.D. connections too as Lauren and Claire found their way in speedy fashion!

  • Thursday 6pm:   It's a Bears Den in Byron. Come out for routes of 3, 4, or 6 miles and back to the Den for the social!
