Once again it was a pleasure to watch all of you cross the finish line and help you out along the way. It was fun talking to some kids and aid station volunteers who had never seen an ultramarathon before and listen to their excitement when seeing these friendly runners pass through. Our 15 year old son had a lot of fun working the Spirit Mtn aid station with some of his friends this year. And, after packet pick up on Friday, he said in all sincerity, "Ultrarunners are the nicest people, if you were going to categorize them, you would say they are the nicest people." Great to hear from a teenager and what a tremendous compliment to our community!
And a HUGE, HUGE shout out to our wonderful volunteers!!! From our trail markers, to our timers, to our aid station crews, to Eric Nordgren who ran around the course all day, to our tireless sweeps and of course our HAM radio operators!!! The majority of our positive comments were about our great volunteers. Kim and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!!!
