Race results are discussed from the nearly-completed NMTC Spring Trail Run series, Pike Lake 10k/Half Marathon, Madeline Island Marathon, Superior Spring Trail Races, and Fargo Marathon.
Upcoming Races include the final NMTC trail race at Chester Park, with a potluck and awards ceremony to follow. Last Runner Standing is on June 10th, Grandma’s Marathon the following weekend, and Midnight Sun Friday night of June 23rd.
Trail conditions are excellent, albeit pretty dry and dusty. In stark comparison to last month’s podcast, Duluth trails are open for business! In this month’s Coach’s Corner segment, Tony discusses taper tips as many look forward to Grandma’s Marathon weekend events in less than two weeks.
Tony and Mike share a favorite route of the week with the Amity Creek and Downer Park trail systems nearby Vermilion Road in the northeastern sections of Duluth. Tony is into golf and a pizza oven house project, and Mike is into gravel road cycling with a recent finish at the Le Grand Du Nord 100 mile race. Tony shouts out three notable, recent finishers of the Pike Lake 10k and Half Marathon.
