Past recaps: 2014 recap
Although it was cold and windy and rainy at last year's 2014 Fort Vancouver Run, the runners and walkers who did brave the elements certainly earned their post race beverage! Thankfully, the forecast for this year's race is looking much better--I 'm hoping to be sipping on my Jamba Juice with my sunglasses on ;) As always, it's a fantastic race from Energy Events.
