Tuff Tornado Run

We’re looking to get back out on the course for our Fifth Annual Tuff Tornado Run! Prepare to get dirty as you make your way towards the finish line to our mud pit. We have Cross Fit Recreate representatives to help you stretch out to music from our DJ. We have food trucks which will be available with a variety of food.

All levels of runners, walkers and teams are welcome to participate. Come join us for an afternoon of fun and fitness and to support our causes. This event will take place rain or shine.
