This Week In Running (Week of October 3 & October 4)
September 30, 2009 by Anthony Portera · 2 Comments
Is October almost here already, or are we dreaming? The recent accomplishments of ultrarunner Geoff Roes of Douglas, Alaska are most certainly NOT a dream. Roes, just two weeks after setting a course record at the Wasatch 100, was at it again last weekend, setting another course record – this time at the Bear 100. When it comes to 100-mile races, Roes has been unstoppable, winning all 6 of the 100s he has entered (including 5 course records). Congrats Geoff !
Prior to taking a look at some (and only some) of the events taking place on the weekend of October 3 and October 4, let’s take a quick look at the results from 2 of the races featured in last week’s edition of TWIR.
