A huge THANK YOU to our runners who came out this morning. The conditions were the toughest I've experience & the competition was strong with almost 60 runners participating among all communities!
As we continue to witness over the weekend, our neighbors who came out to cheer everyone on to support for our athletes has been awesome & really makes a difference in these Games, keep up the great Fair Oaks Spirit!
This event also required the help from several volunteers to assist us with the race turns, traffic control, registration & the finish line duties, thank you for all of your help as it played a big part in having a smooth safe event.
