This past weekend a few CRi employees laced up their running shoes for the Aqua-Run, raising money for Aqua Africa. The race is a 10K relay race, with teams from 3 to 5 members, who each carry a 1/2 gallon hydration pack for the duration of the race. The race is 5 loops around Elmwood Park, starting and ending at the Pavilion on the East end of the Park. There are youth and adult divisions for trophies and medals.  Trophies are awarded to the top 3 adult teams and 1 trophy to the top youth team. The CRi team placed 5th out of 40 teams.

The CRi Team (order, name):

  • 1st Ben Wicks
  • 2nd Nate Wallman
  • 3rd Captain: Todd Nichols
  • 4th Tanner Tuttle
  • 5th Todd Britson
