iDaph Events racing series
In the time that we have been organizing running and multi-sport events in Western North Carolina, a footprint has been made, a reputation earned, and an identifiable mark left. But we will not simply settle for being at the forefront of the local race scene. No, my friends, “good enough” just isn’t good enough for us as organizers, nor for you as participants.
In this spirit of perfectionism, we now step our game up to the next level with the unveiling of what is sure to be an invigorating and very competitive race series. Besides raising the level of good-spirited competition and throwing a little more incentive into the mix, we are really hoping that this iDaph Events Racing Series will also encourage you folks to cross over and try events that you may not typically register for.
