The athletes that take part in this challenge are amazing! We were so impressed with the achievements of the participants and were proud to be there to witness history! At this race, we saw runner Amy Palmiero set a new world record for the fastest amputee racer to complete the 50 mile race! She was so fast, she beat the previous world record for men and women by over an hour! She was truly an inspiration for all athletes at the event.
We are looking forward to being at the next North Face Endurance Challenge in Madison, WI on October 24, 2009. See you there!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
