LogoThe second annual Aspen TNT (Town -N- Trail) 10K Race is scheduled for Saturday, October 4, 2014.  The race showcases a unique route on a variety of trails, bike paths and sidewalks around the town of Aspen, Colorado and benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Colorado-Wyoming Chapter.  The TNT race will begin and end in Koch Park followed by a post-race party at the Limelight Hotel – not to be missed!  There will be live music, food & drinks, giveaways, and CASH prizes for the top male & female runners, and best costume!  For more information or to register to run or to volunteer see our website at www.aspentnt.com.

MS is chronic disease of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves – it is the leading cause of disability in young women and the second leading cause of disability in young men.  The National MS Society is an organization that wants to do something about MS NOW, and is dedicated to achieving a world free of MS.  100% of net proceeds from the race will be donated to the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
