St. Patrick’s Day and The Mesa Meltdown coincided for a festive finale to the Empowered Energy Systems 2023/2024 Race Series. The 20K featured a challenging course over varied terrain on the superbly groomed trails provided by Tigran Bailey. Egor Gavrilov and Jordan French were the Meltdown cream of the crop. Tina Wilson and Andrew Ralston used the race to cement their positions at the top of the Series standings and each were rewarded with a new Loki jacket. Great work through the season and thanks Loki!

Three young racers took part in the Kids 2K. Watch out for these athletes in years to come!

Additional valuable door prizes were provided by Peach Street Distillers, Palisade Peach Shack, Rick’s at 145, Snow Capped Cider, Antelope Drinking Chocolate, Slice of Life Bakery, Basecamp Brewery and Cale Kennedy Pottery. As always, a huge shout out goes to our crew of dedicated volunteers and to Empowered Energy Systems, your source for great solar energy solutions!
