A few of the NEO TC members took a long trip up to Manistee, Michigan, to participate in the 13th year of the North Country Trail Races.
They were hoping for a bit of cooler weather, being in almost northern Michigan, but alas, it was the same as being at home in Ohio-race day was typical summer, high of 89, about corresponding humidity.
Julie Bowen Miller finished the marathon in 6 hours 49 minutes.
Kimba finished the 50 mile distance in 12 hours 16 minutes. Her race report is here.
There was a 1/2 marathon, marathon, and 50 mile distance at this event. The course was very runner friendly, consisting of mostly non-technical, sandy, runnable single track. Very well organized race and nice aid stations only 3 to 4 miles apart.
