Alabama State 50 Mile Record

Christy Scott sets 50 Mile State Record

Buck Jones, the Alabama State Record Keeper from the USATF has approved the use of 50 mile spilts in 12 hour events as official state records, given they meet all certification guidelines.  This means that those running in the Delano 12 hour race in Decatur, Alabama from last month are eligible for state records.

Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team member Christy Scott ran a time of 09:45:29 which is the new state age record for  35 year old females.  Congratulations to Christy on her first state record!

More details can be found on the State Running Records website here. A special thanks to Eric Schotz as race director of Delano 12 for following through with Buck to ensure that this record time was eligible.
