There ought to be a deluge of stories and reports coming from the 2012 addition of the Ice Age 50. The LPTR presence was huge with LPTR and Race Director Jeff Mallach pulling off another stellar event – Not without a TON of help from LPTR and Volunteer Coordinator Angela Barbera and her army. Thanks to all who helped out there!!!
The group had nearly 50 participants between the 50k and 50 mile – so much fun to see familiar faces on the out and backs! Lots of first-time finishers at each distance and even some PR’s in surprisingly tough conditions.
Wisconsinite Zach Bitter leveled a national class field in winning the 50 mile in 6:03 - This despite taking a couple of headers along the way!
And for some, the “race” isn’t quite over. Craig used the race as a send off for his attempt at completing 500 miles!!!! He’s out there as we speak – Check his progress here.
Can’t wait to post reports and photos – I will put them up as I get them. Write ‘em up while the blood is still fresh!!!
