Finally, 2-time Olympian, Bob Kennedy briefly spoke of his personal connection to the environment and then led the children's events.

"Great race for a great cause. Very professionally run, with ultra-friendly and helpful volunteers...I will certainly be back next year, with my family." - 2003 Race Participant

When racers crossed the finish line they had the opportunity to enjoy food and beverages from Clif Bar, Stonyfield Farm, Nature's Path Foods and others as Wild Oats hosted our Naural Food/Beverage table. In addition, there were a number of organizations that are focused on global warming present.
