If you know the Miles for Maria races, chances are you love them - and we do too! We wanted to put together a very special event for her; thus the Festival of Races was born. We have MANY options to join the fun, from 3 hours all the way up to 36 hours. There is also a special 100 mile race mixed in.
ANYONE that covers 100 or more miles during their event will get an amazing Miles for Maria belt buckle! (See photos section for a picture of it)
This race also has special meaning behind it. We chose this weekend specificially, as Feb 28th, 2021 is Rare Disease Day, so we thought it was fitting (given Maria's BBSOAS diagnosis) that we held this very special race on this particular weekend!
Miles for Maria was created in honor of our daughter who deals with Epilepsy every day. We find our strength in her daily, and we wanted to recognize that by creating a series of ultra events. In addition to helping provide funds for research, a portion of the proceeds will also go towards a scholarship fund for Maria for future education and therapy needs.
