GlobalX Racing did a great job on the first Circle City Sprint Adventure Race. Jerry, Joe and Greg picked up the race after Wild Onion organizers dropped the Indy Wild Scallion from their schedule. The race was hot, fast and fun. We congratulate the winners, Peoples Burn Foundation, who finished right at fiour hours. Urban Warrriors won the 4 person coed, and True North won the three person coed.
Team Ragged Glory raced in the four person coed division and finished at 4:29, fifth in our division and seventh of 32 teams overall. Bob and Julie have changed the level at which we race, increasing not only the speed of TRG but the fun as well. We’ll have a race recap up in a few days.

This was one hot race.
Pogue’s Run Tunnel was part of the race, as was the old Hilton U Brown Theater on the Butler University campus. The temperature was in the 90s and we all felt the heat.
Check out the tunnel entrance.
