Athletes will have access to support and accountability leading up to the race.  Athletes not participating in the Mountain Meltdown are free to join as well, if they are just looking increase their endurance. When signing up for a slot please indicate if you will be running the race. 

Workouts: Athletes will already be attending 4-5 WODs a week.  One of these workouts can be added onto a WOD, while the other two can replace two of their WODs that week. Ryan will be leading/training these WODs during Thursday open gym (5:30pm) and Sunday mornings (9am) at Cricket Hill near the lakefront.  These workouts will be designed to increase their endurance, build a bigger aerobic capacity and learn to deal with lactic acid build-up when climbing steep inclines.
