ACTIONS: Share our facebook
page, invite friends, attend our pre-race party, contact our race director to sponsor, volunteer or clarify any questions. What is the event all about, really? Our passion and purpose for the Ultimate Towner has grown even stronger. Last year our Jackson event was dedicated to the late, great Jarad Spackman and his messages of Being Bold, Taking the Plunge and Loving Life are stronger than ever. In fact, our theme of not only Overcoming Your Obstacles, but CELEBRATING overcoming your obstacles is the driving force. Whether you’ve been through a difficult relationship, experienced that “not if but when” acl surgery or some other physical ailment, had a business or finance challenges or yes, lost someone close, we’ve all dealt with life’s curve-balls. Luckily, we live in one of the greatest communities on the planet where we rally around and support each other even in the most difficult of struggles. We’re in this together. And the “why” behind the Ultimate Towner is about celebrating our personal tribulations, triumphs and our connections that keep us keeping on. So let’s do this! Register today and go to our Ultimate Towner Facebook Jackson Event Page and invite all your friends! Our goal is to create an incredibly awesome community event. So rally your friends, bring your A Game and let’s have a blast together. We will fire things up with our signature “Ultimate Elevation” and will have a few surprises in store for you on Sunday, May 11th. More MUD, a few mystery obstacles and our culminating “Love Life” wall will all be part of the awesomeness.
