North Face Endurance Run is a Fun, Fall Race

N

Sorry for getting this out so late … We received this submission a couple of weeks ago. ******************************* It’s time to lace up those sneakers for those crazy enough and healthy enough to run The North Face Endurance Challenge next weekend (Sept. 24-25) at the Park City Mountain Resort.
