NCTS 2018 Wrap-Up!

2018 marked the 5th year of the No Coast Trail Series and with it, another incredible year of running trails all over the state of Iowa! Seeing this wonderful community of races, runners, organizers and volunteers continue to grow and evolve into what it is today, has been a rich and rewarding experience. THANK YOU!

This year saw the series comprised of 11 independent top quality trail running events offering 27 different distances with 56 hardy No Coast runners racing at least 3 events throughout the year and being eligible for division awards!
INCREDIBLE job everyone and congratulations to all division winners!

Some special shout outs:
-Danielle Wangsness and Bryan Powers for running ALL ELEVEN races this year and Dave Fischer close behind with 10 of the 11 races including his first 100k at the MoS100!
-To all the repeat participants and division winners over the years including Denise Whiting, Tim Bergan, Jason Willits, Kim Wander, Debby Hildebrand, Kelly Teeselink and of course, Ross Salinas for placing at the top of the series all five years including 1st in the Open Ultra division this year!
