Looking back to June, race results are in from the NMTC Spring Trail Running Series, Last Runner Standing, Grandma’s Marathon weekend events, and a couple of 5k races including Midnight Sun Midnight Run and Sawdust. Upcoming races are plentiful with the YMCA Sidewalk Shuffle 5k, Park Point 5 miler, Eugene Curnow Trail Marathon, Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Ultramarathon, and the Buzz Ryan Sprint and Brewhouse Triathlons, all within a month!
Trail Conditions around Duluth are good, however potentially overgrown in some areas like out-of-town SHT. Many volunteers are needed to clear trails as vegetation has grown up fast! Tony discusses road safety tips for all runners, a battle between GPS units, and he and Mike each detail a new shoe option.
Mike’s Route of the Week is the Superior Hiking Trail through Duluth, Tony is into the Lap Count newsletter and running at one of his bucket list running locations: Bislett Stadium in Oslo. Finally, Tony shouts out some local Grandma’s weekend runners who had excellent races and/or personal bests.
