Squaw Peak 50 ended up being one of the craziest 50 milers I’ve ever run! The race started out with lot’s of rain as we climbed our first ascent we entered the snow zone! Yes it dumped 2 – 4 inches of snow in the morning then the sun came out and we all got to enjoy the MUD! From the winner on down every one’s time was about an hour slower with all the slip sliding we did. I had the pleasure of running with Jean Coulter who eventually took the lead as we cruised down windy pass! Nice job Jean, see you at the Speedgoat 50k, the Wasatch 100 warm up!
There was another stellar performance from Master WasatchSpeedGoat Dave Hunt, he really enjoys the big vertical and posted a 5th place finish. Dave gives credit to his pacer and teammate Bryon Powell who was fired up for the task! Three scrapes to the masters winner.
