What a fabulous day we all had yesterday! Sure, it was a bit (ok, a lot) humid out, but we didn’t get any rain! And that’s a win for this summer.
Thank you to all the runners who came out to participate in the Monster Marathon and Half Marathon yesterday. We hope you were able to see the forest monsters at least once!
BIG CONGRATS TO OUR WINNERS! Yvette De Boer was our half marathon champion (with a new course record!) and Gerrit Van Loon was our marathon champion. All runners should be proud. This was a hard course on a very hot and humid day!
Did we really have a race if there isn’t photographic evidence? Of course not! We got some great shots. You can check them out in FLRC’s photo library.
Download, upload, and do all the Internet things, but make sure you tag @FLRCithaca and do all the appropriate hashtag-ing so we can share the love.
We wanted to give a shoutout to our lunch caterers, Fitnell Farms! They’ve got the best post-race food around town, and we hope all the runners and volunteers enjoyed refueling with some tacos and sides. Be sure to keep an eye out on all the good stuff they’ve got going on.
Finally, a GIGANTIC THANK YOU to all the volunteers who came out yesterday. They kept runners safe, well hydrated, well fueled, and generally happy. We could not have put this race on without them!
We hope to see everyone at Danby Down and Dirty in just a couple of weeks!
Your race directors,
Cat Massa, Dave Kania, Mikhail Kern
