For the first time in 2012, in addition to the tournament, we kicked off RIBS weekend with "Rylee's Run" 5K....it was such a huge success, we're doing it again! This year's 5K will be held on Friday evening, May 17th at 7:00 pm, on the course at the beautiful Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
More than 175 runners joined us in this inauguaral event, which finished on the field inside the 3,000-seat soccer stadium.
