The 5th annual Mines of Spain Trail Races took place this past Saturday in Dubuque and runners were treated to perfect summer racing weather on trails that have gained a reputation as both equally beautiful and brutal! After conquering either the 4mi, 7mi or half marathon distances, runners were quick to partake in the delicious fresh made breakfast pizzas and local craft beer at the post race party.
FORTY(!) No Coast runners participated at the MoSTR with many of those runners taking top places!
In the 1/2 marathon, series and race veteran Ross Salinas was 1st place overall and Tom Naert (6th), Jeff Moeur (7th), Jake Taylor (8th), Kelly Teeselink (3rd), Jennifer Yohnnie Juhlin (5th) and Laci Hoffmann (9th) all placed in their gender’s top 10!
In the 4 mile race, Dean Schwickerath was 1st place overall!
