Start your 2018 off right by running through the streets of the Town of Porter, Indiana. I have rented the Hawthorne Park Community Center so we will be inside for sign ups, packet pick up, post race food, and the award ceremony. Coffee is the name of the game, and that means Deathwish Coffee, the "Strongest Coffee in the World," of course. We will have Deathwish Coffee included as an ingredient in our snacks and be brewing it as well. There will be a raffle for prizes such as Deathwish Coffee items. Time to be #fueledbydeath.
