JFK race weekend, Mackey tears up the big hole! 9

Mac Daddy tears across the big hole!

Dave Mackey has recently re-written the Grand Canyon Doublecross recordbook flying across the ditch in 6:59 and change. Kyle Skaggs ran 7:37 last year to throw in another chapter, but Mackey just chiseled it in stone at the South Kaibab Trailhead. Running the classic route from S. Kaibab and back, the 41.6 mile route climbs over 11,000′ all on technical trail with the mighty mule train to even slow him down a bit!

JFK 50 this weekend

The race with many mystery men and women has the largest field ever with 1300 runners chasing Eric Clifton’s record. Keep an eye on it. Greg Crowther, with a win here could take home the ultimate Speedgoat Trophy with a stellar year behind him. Pete Breckenridge, Mark Lundblad, Mark Godale, and Kwijboo himself should contest for the win. Or could it be the ultimate Husband-Wife victory as Mark Lundblad and wife Anne have an outside chance of doing just that. It’ll be a speedy one. We’ll have results as soon as possible.
