The Sloan Family Fun Race is March 16 and 17. It is the last race of the season hosted by MARA.
This race is open to anyone (over the age of 6) who is wanting to race!
Saturday, March 16th, is the giant slalom race (2 runs). All family members are invited to participate in the race, test their skills on the course, and experience first-hand what the MARA athletes are enjoying. Fun costumes are also encouraged!
The events on Saturday will be followed by a barbecue for all participants.
The race on Sunday will be a slalom course (2 runs).
MARA athletes are not required to race, however it is encouraged. Even if your scheduled program has ended you may still race!
As always, the success of our hosted races is largely dependent on the volunteers who staff it. None of the jobs are complicated or require previous experience. The bottom line for volunteers is that it’s low pressure, fun, and we can’t do it without you! To sign up to volunteer click here.
See you there!
