In case you didn't know, local high schoolers will be manning (lumberjacking? 🤔) all of the aid stations at #BTMR2019. A significant portion of BTMR race proceeds go back to high school running teams. Keep track of which aid station is your favorite on Sunday, and don't forget to VOTE when you get back down to Soda Springs Park. The more votes the teams get, the more money they receive! 💰💵⚙️⚒
