The Tour De Bass and our Zombie Run for children were both excellent!  Thanks to the Tour riders, the kids, zombies and parents at the Zombie Run!  Special thanks go to Mercy for their Tour De Bass partnership and to Harrison Elementary School for letting us use their course and sharing the day with us.  We could not complete any of our events without our volunteers.  Bless each of you that helped make these events happen!  
We still need volunteers for our Marathon Weekend and Dogwood Canyon Weekends!  Check out our volunteer page for more information.
