Storm the Park is going VIRTUAL!

As we look to keep everyone safe, we are changing the format of Storm the Park to be a virtual event. We have created an event site where you can participate and submit your results online. This way you can see how you and everyone else is doing on the race leaderboard.

Since we will no longer be out at Whitewater, we will open registration back up for others to join in on the fun! All participants registered by April 30th will receive a Storm the Park long-sleeved technical shirt. We will schedule a couple of drive-through shirt pick-ups in Winona. If you are unable to make it to shirt pick-up, we will mail it to you.

An email has been sent out to all registered participants with more details.

All new registrations will receive instructions on completing the virtual registration in their confirmation email.
