don’t worry you aren’t the only wondering why its called no hassholes. let us tell you why!
If you’re wondering where the name for this race came about as soon as you meet Dave Forbes, the race director, you will understand with his French Canadian accent in an English community. It has been a running joke about his pronunciation or certain words that make for funny conversation. So now we call ourselves the NO HASSHOLE RUNNING CREW!
Last year Heather was the winner of the 30 KM race. She won one of our awesome trophies (cedar Lake Superior carved by Spike Mills). Heather is an amazing competitor with the stamina of a true hasshole. Her commitment to the sport is like no other. Think you got what it takes to give Heather a run for her money? DO YEAH?
