Speedgoat 50k is in the books…. 6

Aug6

as one of the most competitive 50k’s in the US this year.   Big 50k’s don’t happen much during summer months…..not the case here.   We’ve all read the reports over at Irunfar, so I’ll spare the details for now, but the bottom line is: All the frontrunners were fast, the mid-pack had fun, and the final runner, (Carter Dunn) finally finished the beast in a record time too.  Slow record that is.  It was a pleasure to see Carter get it done, he finished around 7:30 ish.  Great photos found HERE at Pure Light Images. Tom Maartens was out on the course randomly and took photos all around.

Here we see Rickey Gates floating across Baldy on his way to setting the “Speedgoat course” record

And a quick look at what you missed this year if you didn’t run…..

See ya next year folks…

    How did you manage to get all those flowers blooming in Mineral Basin? Seriously every race director needs to take notes on how a course should be marked, aid stations stocked and abuse handed out. Thank you for a great day.

    7:30 is definitely a fast last place time! That a little over 2hrs separated 1st from last seems pretty incredible for that course

    Cj, Carter finished at 7:30 pm, not 7 hrs 30 minutes, thus, the winner was 5:14, Dead last was 13:30 ish…..a full 8 hour day at the office for me.

    Thanks to all the volunteers and the sweeper girls that patiently waited for me to zombie my way to dead last. It was truly appreciated!
