It’s our 12th year!

We are moved beyond words to have had such amazing support through the growing pains of hosting such a multifaceted race.

While most of you know we run a few miles on private property, some do not know the land owners name. That is Ramon and Betty Criss. May 2017 we lost Ramon.

With Betty’s permission we are proud of rename this race the Ramon Criss Storm the Dam Trail Run presented by Spencer, Wernli & Wilson Advisors.

The part we do run on was some of Ramon’s favorite land and he would often drive out to check on deer, turkey and other wildlife that made that beautiful land their own.

So as you run on that property, know it is even more special to us.

We can only run on it on race day, that was the one rule in order for him to allow us to continue exploring the beauty.
