Weekend Results

This Nike Fleet Feet Racing team from Huntsville had a very successful weekend from Tennessee to Wisconsin to Colorado to Alabama.

In Alabama, Jon Elmore was the overall winner at the Hoedown Hustle 5km on Saturday with a time of 17:52 in Phil Campbell, Alabama.  That marks at least 4 wins if not more for Jon this season.  

In Florence, Wisconsin, Eric Charette won the inaugural Keyes Peak Trail Marathon in a time of 3:19:58.  The course featured a river crossing at mile 18 where runners could either swim the deep section or make their way downstream to the shallow river crossing.  Being the first one to the crossing and not knowing the depth of the water, Eric chose the swim in the fast current and rapids.  After a few strokes, he floated down to the roped run cross!

In Lake City, Colorado, team members Rob Youngren, Kathy Youngren and Josh Kennedy tackled the brutally tough San Juan Solstice 50 miler.  The entire race is run above 8500', with two climbs that ascend from 9000' to 13000'.  Early reports back from Josh were that Rob and Kathy finished in 13:28 and Josh in 13:51.  In Josh's words, "Mile for mile, toughest course I have ever been on!"
