Episode 272 Summit to Swamp is back for 2021!
Today Pretty Mike James has Hazelanna McMahan from Summit to Swamp back on the show.  Shes announcing that the 2021 event in Randall WA isn't cancelled. Just something different.  Over the past few  years her OCR has been evolving into a bigger and more complex event and with COVID still making  a mess of many people's daily lives she decided to simplify her event and host it as Summit to Swamp Obstacle Mud Run FRIENDS & FAMILY DAY.  There will be no planned elite heats, timing chips, etc. She's opening up the course for you to come have fun on.  It's a free event this year with an option to make donations if you are inclined. If you want to challenge a friend on course you can either do it head to head or we may have some interesting ideas on how to run it.  With this event being free the workforce to build the course is volunteer.  This also means that is you have some strange idea for an obstacle in your head, you may just be able to come out and make it for your friends to try out. We will be helping with work parties March 27th, April 3rd,10th, and 17th.  If you want to help out reach out to Hazelanna or Beastnet.   WANT FREE STUFF?
