This Weekend

This weekend marks the return of ultra running to Huntsville and the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team looks to capture the podium at the Mighty Mountain Mist 50km.  In its 17th year, Mountain Mist has grown to iconic levels in the ultra running community as it remains one of the top 10 (in size) 50km races in the entire United States and frequently draws national class talent.

Competing from the team on the women's side include last year's winner Dana Overton and past winner Kathy Youngren.  Also contesting for the top spot will be Lisa Rawlings, Katie Maehlmann, Christy Scott and Linda Scavarda.

On the men's side, it is a stellar field starting with the overall winner from last year David Riddle and the masters winner (and multiple time overall winner) Dewayne Satterfield.  Chasing these two will be Tim Vinson, Eric Charette, Rob Youngren, James Falcon, Blake Thompson, David Purinton, Brett Wilks, Jon Elmore,  Eric Fritz, Rick Maehlmann, Greg Reynolds, Randy McFarland, Eric Patterson, David Rawlings, Shane O'Neill, Joey Butler and Josh Kennedy.

It should be a great race to run and an even better race to watch.  Good luck to the entire team in where ever your fleet feet take you!
