The Mines of Spain Trail Races took place this past Saturday in Dubuque and runners were treated to some unseasonably cool, overcast and drizzly conditions for the 10th anniversary of the race!!!
Congratulations to all MoSTR runners and special kudos to all of the No Coast runners at the race, many of which placed high in the standings and in their age groups!
On the Club side, the QC-TUR(d)s are maintaining a strong lead with 558.8 pts over the rest of the pack with the LoKeyz in 2nd place with 356.5 pts holding a narrow lead over Thorsday TC who have 328.4 pts! We now move into the second half of the series schedule where lots of Ultra points wait for the taking! Please note, the deadline to join/change Club affiliation is September 13th.
You or someone you know running No Coast races and aren’t signed up for the series yet?! Sign up! It’s free, takes all of 10 seconds and will put you (and your running club) in the chase for some sweet division awards! Plus your participation supports an incredible community of trail races in this great state of Iowa!
September brings us the Booneville Backroads Ultra on the 3rd with PCTR – Pleasant Creek Trail Run the following weekend on the 10th and the Doggone Tired Ultra (Vinton Pizza Hut Runs) rounding out the month on the 24th! All races still have spots open so make sure to check them out and get signed up if you haven’t already!
