For the third year in a row, Dawn and I photographed the Amazing Elkhart Race.  This year's race was bigger and better than ever.   The event bennafits the Church Community Services of Elkhart County.  The Church Community Services' Amazing Elkhart Race challenges teams of four to complete 10+ different legs throughout the city. To learn more about the race go to: http://bit.do/AER

It is a great group of volunteers and an even better group of racers.  They all dress up in costumes and have a great time competing.

We had a great time photographing them as we have in the prior years also.  You can find this years and all the years images HERE.
