ZHR Clydesdale Race
It can be frustrating to always race against others much lighter than yourself, no matter how strong you are! We like the idea of a race for Clydesdales (men over 84kg) and Athenas (women over 70kg), and this race does just that. 5 different categories to choose from (2 for women, 3 for men) based on the Marine Corps divisions for Clydesdale and Athena athletes.
Saturday, 3:05pm BST / 10:05am EDT / 7:05am PDT
