Self Massage and Bathe with Mad Ritual!

Sore from life? We're under a double amount of stress, aren't we!?

During registration you'll see optional DISCOUNTED Mad Ritual add-on items to enhance your post race experience.

Discover self massage with a CBD balm in a tin or relax with CBD infused bath bombs, or get BOTH for double the post race rejuvenation!

These make excellent GIFTS for that special someone too. Try 'em out! We'll have them ready for pick up at the Start/Finish line.

Cross the finish line with Mad Ritual! It's TLC in a tin and you can recover your body like a champ!
