Half Box winner

Run. Eat. Bike. Eat. Run. The Layne’s Challenge was a triathlon of sorts where competitors raced, ate, and biked as fast as they could. It is an event that is entirely student run and student led. All proceeds from registering for the event, over $2,000, went to a food shelter in the College Station area.
