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.

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.

Dakota Jones 2-1. He finished second last year, felt like shit, and probably has alot [...]
