Finisher Steve Ross created this video of runners before and after the race:
The inaugural Mountain Lakes 100 was pretty amazing! Runners and volunteers toughed out a typhoon and kept going for 15 hours until weather disrupted emergency communications. At that point, there was no question that the race needed to be stopped, and that is when the runners, volunteers, family and friends all came together as one. Everyone made sure that the runners were off the course safely and kept warm until their crews arrived. Don’t take our word for it… read some of the great accounts of the race below.
