Its time to start ramping it up. Get out and enjoy the great weather! Group trail run in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve 5:16 AM. Meet at the very top lot of Squaw Peak Drive. Plug in 7400 N. Squaw Peak Drive into google maps. You can't get lost. Plan on a little over 1 hour at a moderate pace. Runner of the Week: Saturday a contingent of WMRC's went to Raleigh, North Carolina and ran the Umstead 50/100 mile run. Runner of the Week goes to Debbie Leftwich who beat her PR by over 30 minutes in the 100 mile and finished with a time of 21:02:00. Almost under 21 hours!2nd Place: Joe Galope completed his 100th Marathon / Ultra with his 50 mile 6th overall Umstead finish. Well done Joe. The Traveling Courys also ran Umstead. Both Jamil and Nick ran the 100 mile race. Jamil ran a quick 18:06:00 with Nick finishing just behind in 19:32:00. New pole: When will Nick shave? Within a week, 6 months, 12months or never?
According to reports the Highline trail is now marked and ready for Zane Grey 50 race day. Honey reports the course is in great shape thanks to Chris Thornley spending thousands of hours clearing and sawing. Thanks to all the others who worked on clearing and marking too!
