Once the race wraps up, we’ll take the action to Creekside Tap Room in Downtown Siloam Springs for awards, food, and post-race shenanigans. Trophies awarded 3 deep with something special for the most “festive” team (it is the holidays and a rock n’ roll themed race… get creative with those costumes!).
