Racing This Weekend

A small contingent of Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team athletes from Huntsville will be making the trek over to Jackson Mississippi for the Bug Butt 100km/50km this weekend.  This race is sponsored by the good folks at Fleet Feet Jackson.

The event will be held on the single-track trails of Butts Park in Clinton, MS, and will consist of either five or ten 6-mile loops, depending on your run. As with many other ultras these days trying to "go green", each runner is required to carry some sort of hydration device with them.

Good luck to Kathy Youngren, Rob Youngren, Blake Thompson, Eric Fritz, Joey Butler and even our Team Apparel Coordinator, Sarah Bowden as they all continue to train for distance events at Lean Horse 50km/50mi/100mi.

Elsewhere the team will be in action volunteering at the Fleet Feet Huntsville Cross Country event for area high school teams on Saturday morning.

Good luck to the entire team in where ever your fleet feet may take you!
