Happy Days Aid Station Report

The NEO Trail Club sponsored the Happy Days Aid Station at Mile 65 of the Burning River 100 Race. We had a very good time. We had great organization and flow through the aid station. It helped greatly that we kept crew and family out of the aid station.

The Trail Goddess had brought the washcloths, and that was a big hit. I received one look of such gratitude from a runner that pretty much made my whole day! It's amazing what a small gesture can do to help a runner with their race.

It really was fun to work the aid station, seeing everyone come in, greet the runners, get them their aid, and kick them the hell out!! I hope we were able to assist someone in finishing their 100 miler on a very tough day out there.
