Weekend Results

This weekend the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team athletes from Huntsville posted victories at both short and long distance races.

At Butts Park in Clinton, MS at the  Big Butt 50km this weekend, sponsored by Fleet Feet Jackson, Blake Thompson took the overall win with a 4:44 in what can only be described as brutally hot conditions. Kathy Youngren captured 2nd place overall and was 1st female with a time of 4:51. Eric Fritz was 4th overall, followed by Joey Butler in 7th.  Temperatures were into the upper 90's on this multi-loop course.  These four were using this race as a tune up for Lean Horse 100m/50m coming up later in August.

In Iron River, Michigan at the Windsor Rodeo 10km, Eric Charette earned the overall win with a 35:56, a season best for him.  This was Eric's 4th victory of the season at distances of 2mile, 5km, 10km and marathon.
