Huge congratulations to Tali Toncray on her race at the Javelina Jundred 100K run this past weekend in McDowell Mountain Park. Tali fought off severe GI issues and unseasonably hot weather to finish in 14:08. This time was good enough for 39th overall and 21st female overall!! Nice job Tali!!
We had a nice weekend of racing last weekend from around the country!
Superfrog 70.3 – CA
Joe Gervais – 5:38 – 13th in AG!
Augusta 70.3 – GA
Frank Smith – 7:36 in horrendous heat and humidity.
Flagstaff, AZ 100 mile run relay
Dave Frome – team finished 2nd in div.
Brandon Welling – team finished in 21:16. Brandon ran a leg of 34 miles in 6:40 and then mountain biked for 66 miles!
Lastly, we want to congratulate Toby Baum for finishing his fourth 100 mile ultra-run in Portland, OR! He finished the Mountain Lakes 100 miler in 28:54 and has now earned enough points to race the famous UTMB Ultra Run in Chamonix, France in 2018. UTMB is considered to crown jewel of ultra runs and is as tough as it is scenic. Way to go, Toby! (picture with this post is from the race – gorgeous!)
Here are some more photos from Brandon Welling’s adventure race, the Endeavor Team Challenge, that started on September 9th, 2017, in the Stanislaus National Forest. The event included a Crucible Road March (15+ miles), Night Navigation, rock climbing, orienteering, obstacle course, and more, as well as a Final Run (10+ miles). Brandon and his teammate finished 2nd overall!
Toby Baum ran the Gorge Waterfalls 100K on April 8th, 2017, at Benson State Recreation Area, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon. We reported on that race already here, but wanted to show some more photos of this lush, epic race. Enjoy!
