Wow! What an amazing race today up on the N. shore. Close to 75 runners plus trail markers, marshals, timers, and other volunteers were up early to support George. Race Director and organizer extroidinare Steve Villiger put together a great event. He even pulled off an all night and early morning rain shower to get the course in perfect HURT conditions: wet & muddy.
Many runners had never run these trails before and for others it was maybe only their second time so everyone was loving the sweet, single track route. In true HURT Trail Series style there were great after race grinds.
Steve and others will probably post some photos later here and on Facebook so watch for those. The amazing thing about what Steve is doing is that he is not finished. Tomorrow he has organized a paddling, water-based event with the same goal of raising money for George. I am hoping once Steve is finished and can rest up a bit that he will share with us some of the details from what this weekend means for George.
I think everyone who participated was happy to contribute and we all received something far greater in return.

As in all HURT Trail Series races we try to do the best we can and get the results accurate. Occaisionally we make mistakes. Please forgive us.
