NCTS Race #04 – Crater Trail Run

Cool, slick & rainy conditions greeted runners at the Crater Trail Run this past weekend for race #04 in this year’s series! With distances ranging from 5k to 50k, runners had a great time tackling beautiful trails & challenging courses up north!
Congratulations to all of the Crater runners and especially to those running their longest distance race on the trails ever! Extra kudos to No Coast runners Ross Salinas (1st & new course record in the 25k), Cary Richey (3rd 25k) and Jodee Ross (3rd 25k) for placing at the top of their races!

In the Club Division, we had a strong showing from Thorsday TC and the LoKeyz resulting in quite the top 3 shakeup! Thorsday is now in the lead with 155.3 points after scoring over 67 Trail Division points at Crater alone! LoKeyz have moved up to 2nd with 127.8 points and the QC-TUR(d)s are in close pursuit in 3rd with 124.3 points!

Next up on June 18th in Davenport is the Schuetzen NEIN Hour Endurance Run! 9 hours to run as many challenging miles as you can and those miles = points! For those of you running, get ready to feel all the feels…

Registration also JUST OPENED for the Woodpecker Six, the most recent addition to the series! It’s a six hour timed event and takes place November 12th outside Cedar Rapids. Sign-up here:
