A full report will be posted soon, along with photos, but here is a summary. Connor woke up race day morning not feeling well. He decided to try the race anyway and ended up throwing-up during the first lap. After running nearly a marathon, he was forced to crawl into the tent and try to fight off the food poisoning/bug. He went back out and managed to run a grand total of 50 kilometers (31 miles) - generally the distance that first is recognized as an ultra marathon. Brandon fought the heat (and it was HOT) and dry winds, plus midnight hours, to log an incredible 50 miles!
