Thank you to our race prize supporters: Peets Dryers, Tiger Balm, KT Tape, Mammut, Sock Guy, The Right Stuff. And as always, thank you your dedicated Gold Rush team of volunteers who made all parts of this race possible. We loved seeing everyone's happy and sunblocked faces after the race and hearing your stories. We hope you are all rehydrated and that your body temps have returned to normal--and that you're all now ready to join us in November for the Cold Rush!
