Seeking volunteers age 50 and over & under age 50 to run in these prestigious events.
The "over 50" will take place immediately following the "Younger" Human Horse Race.
Requirements: You must raise $, get in a horse suit, run down the homestretch in 2- 4 inches of mud in front of 80,000 people, hope to make it to the finish line and win absolutely nothing but the satisfaction of helping others!
How It Works
