Hashathon held November 12 - RESULTS NOW POSTED

This year's Hashathon was GREAT! The Fall 6 mile trail classic (38th annual) was held on Sunday, November 12th.  Congratulations to Overall Winners Christian Cleary and Lynn Nelson.

The race was challenging, but nearly everyone finished intact. This is definitely not "golf course" caliber Cross County.  The Hashathon course is hilly, rugged, covers plenty of uneven stairs, roots, logs and so much more.
