Round three of the Verge MAC series on November 10th, the Beacon 'cross race, has announced that proceeds from the food and drink sales at the race will benefit the Beacon Animal Rescue. Volunteers from the shelter will be manning the concession located on top of the course's signature obstacle: the 'Amphitheatre of Pain' run-up. The concession will feature a pasta bar and choices for meat eaters and vegans.
In addition to the proceeds from selling 'people food', the Shelter is also asking for donations of money, cat food (preferably 9 Lives or Friskies), dog food (preferably Pedigree) and anything else that is normally needed to care for a cat or dog. The Beacon Animal Rescue (which is not affiliated with race sponsor Beacon Cycling & Fitness) is a non-profit organization located near the race in Cape May County, New Jersey, and is dedicated to rescuing domestic animals that are about to be euthanized in shelters.
