Despite the weather, I know we have runners out on the 50 Mile and 17 Mile course of Zumbro Bottoms. Below is a pic of the start at midnight... yes.. the 50 milers started running at midnight! The people you may know in the field? Dave Eide, Mike Schmitt and Hurricane Schrader.
Lots of RED members are wrapping the 17 miler about now.. and some great volunteers were out there too! Weather is bad enough for runners, but to volunteer in severe weather is also tough, as you're not creating the same warmth! Thanks to Ann, Lorelei, Gwen, Meg and Elaine for being out there with those runners today!
