Recap: GFL Series at St Pete

Posted by Rob Meronek 15 days ago on February 4th, 2021

The #GFLSeries staff was on site at 7am and wrapped up at 9pm after a long day of rain delays. That was combined with a super rad day with 194 entries, many from the large adaptive community that came through. That was the feel good moment of the year kicking that off and 2021 just started! What an inspiration.

Thanks so much to everyone joining us for the cause, good times, new friends, and progression on the wood and wheels. See you in New Smyrna on March 13!

#GFLSeries is supported by Marinela, New Balance, Jain, Jessup, El Yucateco, Igloo, Red Bull, Zumiez, Pro-Tec, GoPro, and Bones.
