Weekend Results

The Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville had a very successful weekend across the Tennessee Valley, starting early on Saturday in Decatur.  Repeating 1-mile gravel loops for 12 straight hours could only mean one thing; Delano Park Ultra Marathon!  The team has had great success at this event over the years in the 50k, 50M, 12-hour and relay divisions.  This year Rob Youngren lead the way in the 12-hour event, logging 72 miles.  That makes 2 wins in 8 days for Rob as he also posted a low 17 last weekend to win the Beignet Bash 5k in Huntsville.  DeWayne Satterfield was the men's master winner and third place overall as he looped the park 69 times.  David Rawlings assembled a relay team again this year and they finished 4th overall among teams with 72 miles.

In New Hope, Eric Charette captured his 4th consecutive overall win at the Care Center 5k, just 4 weeks after having knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus.  Christy Scott was the women's winner and finished 8th overall.
