Safety is the name of the game
As ultra running is become ever popular in the US, we see a full field yet again this year. The rain from June 2018 never really stopped. We saw a very wet 2018 and early 2019. But it finally started to dry up but not without leading to some damages. A large sink hole had formed on Woodstock mountain leaving it closed for months. It would remain closed, during the 2019 event, but with enough safety measures we are able to get people around it. The runners had the added bonus this year of safely treversing the mountain on the return trip to the fairgrounds without traffic swooping around the tight switchbacks in the middle of the night.
Leblond is becoming untouchable on our course. He takes first to finish yet again. Will he be the next to receive a 1,000 mile buckle? See more 2019 photos on our Facebook page.
