Spring Fling 600
Come and provide pre-, post-, and intra-race massage to a great group of athletes!
Since this is a looped course we will have the rare opportunity to provide intra-race massage, athletes can come out of the race, get some quick work done, and go back out to run so you really get the chance to see the results of your work.
