HALF MARATHON & 10K

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2020

 

UPDATE

 

This year has been a burr under the saddle!

 

Our two main goals for the John Wayne Grit Series events are to: Fight Cancer and give every participant an amazing experience. As much as we want to bring you the same John Wayne Grit Series experience like last year, the current COVID-19 restrictions will not allow us to host an in-person run to same John Wayne caliber. Luckily, we will still be able to achieve our #1 goal by bringing our #JohnWayneGrit to the fight against cancer virtually!
