Results – Stones & Strength

23 June 2015

First and foremost, I just wanted to give a huge shout-out to all everyone from Raincity who came out this weekend to cheer on our #RAthletes who competed at Stones and Strength. The events were short but nasty and having a cheering squad there to support you can make a huge difference.
