1st Annual Farragut Winter Triathlon
Grooming trails is very difficult to do by hand though and I know that if we had a groomer available to us we could create more outdoor winter activities closer to home. With this in mind, I set about finding a way to pay for an expensive groomer. Thanks to Mike Gaertner of Vertical Earth I was able to take over a 501(c)7 and we have created Trail Maniac Foundation. Trail Maniac Foundation is a nonprofit corporation and our goal is to create more outdoor opportunities for winter groomed trails close to town. These trails will be open for fat biking, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing. Currently, we have a Best Track sled single track groomer ordered and it will be delivered the first week of January 2018. I still need to finish paying for this groomer and that’s where you come in. Your participation in the TMF’s Winter Triathlon is a fundraiser to help pay for the groomer and other expenses associated with grooming.
