Iron Furnace 50K/25K Update: BikeReg Link is live (old timey description in the link but you are headed to the right place): https://www.bikereg.com/12th-annual-wawayanda-spring-cleaning

I just want to let folks know that we are working on course design now and this course will be a milder course than the BearScat50. Still challenging but a good way to get some early season endurance fitness going.
