Joan Wilson, whose life this race honors, was an incredible woman whose love for God and for her family was apparent in every aspect of her life. The loss of Joan in a hit and run jogging accident devastated many, but her spirit carries on as a tribute to the way she lived her life. Her zest for life and love of the outdoors, as witnessed in her adventure racing, make it the perfect vehicle by which to honor her memory.

Each year, a portion of the proceeds from this race are donated to the Holt International Children's Services, through which a child is sponsored each year in Joan's memory.
