NCTS Race #10 – Swiss Valley Trail Run

The Swiss Valley Trail Run took place this past weekend near Dubuque on one of the most picture perfect October weekends possible! Race #10 saw runners tackling the 5.2mi loop once, 3x for the 25k or 6x for the 50k!

Congratulations to all of the Swiss Valley runners and special kudos to the TWENTY TWO No Coast runners at the race, many of whom placed on the podium!

In the 50k, Jacob Gallagher took 1st place and Scott Hundertmark was 3rd!
In the 25k, Ross Salinas was 1st place male, Cary Richey was 3rd place male and Jodee Ross rounded out the female podium in 3rd place!

On the Club side, the QC-TUR(d)s (654 pts) maintain their commanding lead ahead of Thorsday TC (536.8 pts) and the LoKeyz (399.1 pts) but the gap between the trophy and 2nd place continues to shrink as Thorsday throws down some commanding performances including Jacob Gallagher’s 2nd 50k victory on back to back weekends!

With there only being two races left, the 3 race minimum rule is beginning to take effect and we’re seeing the point spread becoming much closer in both the individual and club competitions! A big Ultra slugfest rapidly approaches at the Mines of Spain 100 next weekend followed up with the No Coast’s newest member race, the Woodpecker Six on November 12th! The six hour timed format provides something for everyone and will be a great opportunity to score some final series points! Get signed up now before the race sells out!
