This Weekend

There are quite a few races this weekend across the region that members of the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville will be tackling, starting off in Birmingham at the Mercedes Marathon.  Running the marathon are Tim Vinson, Blake Thompson, Kathy Youngren, Rob Youngren, Joey Butler and Eric Charette.

In Lithia Springs, Georgia at Sweetwater Creek State Park, Shane O'Neill will be running the
SweetH20 Sweetheart Half Marathon. This race course offers 13.1 miles of winding moderately difficult trails in and around the Park, following the lovely rapids of Sweetwater Creek, and venturing past Civil War-era textile mill ruins.

Josh Kennedy will be heading north this Saturday for Louisville Lovin' the Hills 50km. This race is supposed to be the toughest 50km in the south, comparable to Cheaha 50km. Josh will be using this as the first in a series of training runs for Western States 100.

Team member Linda Scavarda race directs the HTC's first road race of the season on Sunday with the 2 and 4 mile races at Winter Winds.

Good luck to the team in where ever their fleet feet take them!
