The 2nd race in the 2018 No Coast Trail Series took place over the weekend at the Hawkeye 50K/25K and WHEW! Nothing says crazy Iowa weather like what runners were greeted with on Saturday! Cold temps, relentless wind & rain and a nice dose of mud made for an extremely challenging but equally rewarding day! Many hearty runners stuck it out though and finished what they started for some impressive displays of grit!
Congratulations to No Coast runners Ross Salinas (50K), Bryan Powers (50K), Danielle Wangsness (50K), Ben Hansen (25K) ((sidenote: Ben’s 12 years old!)), Aimee Jones (25K), Jen Even (50K) and Dave Stock (50K) for their top performances and a special congrats to everyone who ran their first ultra at Hawkeye this weekend! Way to go!!!
We get a short break from No Coast racing this next month and resume again at the Sunderbruch B&B Trail Races in Davenport on May 19th and the Booneville Backroads Ultra south of Des Moines on May 26th!
