Weekend Starting Line

This weekend the Nike Fleet Feet Racing team from Huntsville takes to the trails in longer distance trails. This is highlighted by three team mates at the San Juan Solstice 50 miler (former the Lake City 50M). This is arguably the hardest 50 miler in the country. The entire race is run above 8500', with two climbs that ascend from 9000' to 13000'. Running this race are Rob Youngren, Kathy Youngren and Josh Kennedy.

Eric Charette will be up North at the inaugural Keyes Peak Trail Marathon hosted by Great Lakes Endurance in Florence WI.

Locally in the Tennessee Valley, Shane ONeill will be amongst the 1000 runners at the RC Cola Moon Pie 10 miler in Bell Buckle, TN. This is the 14th annual running of this hilly course.
