This year, Manchester Gym is joining and will offer training for the race, to be held on Saturday, September 15, at Killington Ski Resort. The event raises funds for those in need. Volunteers earn a free race voucher; Spartan will donate $50 for each team member to The Collaborative, whose mission is to promote the development of a healthy, involved community supporting substance free youth in a caring environment.
