A team of brave men from Elk Corp., Dallas, and Roofing Contractor’s own Marcia Wright participated in and successfully completed this year’s Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred.

The event’s history began in 1982. According to the Web site (www.hh100.org), Wichita Falls, Texas, was planning its Centennial Celebration and a rocking-chair marathon was proposed to begin the festivities. Roby Christie of the Wichita Falls Bicycle Club suggested that a better kickoff would be a bicycle ride — 100 miles in 100-degree weather to celebrate 100 years. Sanctioned by the League of American Wheelman, the Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred, is annually the largest sanctioned century ride in the Untied States.
