Ascent Runs NEWS
Even though we hardly saw winter for the Winter Trail Series, you can't argue that the 2014/2015 season has been great for running trail. A BIG THANK YOU to all of the runners that joined us this year, as well as our generous sponsors and volunteers! We could not do it without every one of you.
The inaugural run of the Carson Canyons Half Marathon was a success as well. The first race held on the recently completed Ash to Kings Trail, all 40+ runners reported back with rave reviews. The course records have been set: Brett Long was first to complete the course in a smokin' fast 1:45:58, and the first female, Lindsey Bednar came in at 2:00:14. WOW! Thanks for setting that bar high. Can't wait until next year!
There was one casualty: Ollie, the sweep dog lost a claw, but he was undeterred, and went on to keep the sweep together for the entire 13.4 miles. Good dog Ollie!
It's final: Ascent Runs is adding a half marathon event to the roster and the inaugural run is less than 3 weeks away.
