How the Name of the Race Came About
If you’re wondering where the name for this race came about as soon as you meet Dave Forbes, the race director, you will understand with his French Canadian accent in an English community. It has been a running joke about his pronunciation or certain words that make for funny conversation. So now we call ourselves the NO HASSHOLE RUNNING CREW!
