In appreciation of this support, and for the awesome work that SMT volunteers put in all year, a large chunk of the proceeds from this race will be donated to SMT, just as in past years. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the local community, and it's also the best way to watch the race as well. Click the link above for details!
