A core part of our mission has been to be good environmental stewards. As we get to race in some of the most beautiful locations Rhode Island has to offer, we want to do our part in minimizing our footprint not just at these locations, but in our greater global use. To that end, we […]

November – A Time of Thanks

awesome finish line shot

November is a time for reflection and thanks for us.? Not only is it the end of our racing season, but we formed the company 5 years ago in November so it is our Anniversary as well!? (You can learn more about us at this link.) We are always so incredibly grateful at the end […]
