Dinner will follow and feature guest speakers Anne Lang and Lauren Kraft from the BRF Barf Podcast. They are both ultra runners and provide great advice/inspiration for the sport on their podcast. They also tell a lot of great jokes too. After their talk, we will host an open jam on the stage, so bring an instrument, or lend us your voice.

-Saturday morning Anne and Lauren will lead a 4-hour run that will be a lap-based trail run on/around McChesney Ridge. Runners will have access to aid/water every 3 miles.
After the run, lunch will be served and camp will be finished.
