This year’s event also coincides with the 50th anniversary of race’s beneficiary, Camp Colton, a legendary Northern Arizona institution. Combined proceeds from entry fees, racer fundraising, and raffle tickets raised over $57,000. All monies will enable more kids to benefit from access to the outdoors at Camp Colton.
