Recover from the Holidays 50km

For nearly 20 years, runners have been celebrating New Year's Eve in Huntsville by running laps at the running park in an effort to log a few last minute miles.  Officially dubbed Recover from the Holidays, this "fat ass 50km" is a fun atmosphere for runners to run 3 mile loops around the municipal golf course.  The race is currently directed by Christy Scott of Fleet Feet Racing.

This year the conditions were very favorable and runners took advantage of it.  Erik DeBolt lead the team by logging the 12th fastest time ever on the course with his 3:53:27 and was 4th overall.  Aleisha Chaffin, running her first ever 50km, logged the 7th fastest time for females with a 4:42:55.
