Clinton Lake 30 Mile Trail Run

Joel Lammers and Christine Crawford headed to Illinois last weekend for a Flat-lander's race that was anything but flat.  The 30 mile event was held on a 10 mile loop with 1500 feet of elevation gain each time around.  While the hills were not tall, they were constant.  The relentless grind of up and down boasted 99 hills on the course. 

 Rain late in the day made for muddy conditions for most of the runners - But not for Joel and Christine - They were finished early!  Joel finished fourth overall with a 4:25:30 and Christine was next with fifth overall, and first in the women's competition, clocking 4:29:50.  Her effort set a new course record!  Copy the link below and paste to your browser to read the Clinton Lake 30 official race report.
