The Rise Up Runners had a strong showing at the Team Slug Booty Rumble around Killens Pond, Delaware, as Lori Callahan, Mike Valliant, and Derek Hills (Grand Pooba of Team Slug) completed the inaugural 50K event. Photo courtesy of Team Slug.
A full race report of sorts will turn up on The 4-1-Run before long, and likely more here as well, but wanted to spread the word and say congratulations to Lori Callahan for completing for first ultra-distance run and to Derek Hills for rocking another Team Slug event, and the third 20+ mile rumble/stumble since the RURs have made Derek's acquaintance.
There is a great race report and a slew of photos available at the Booty Rumble race page. In case anyone gets to wondering, we believe Derek was "testing" socks for old people during the rumble ;)
Many thanks to the Delaware Slugs for their hospitality, enthusiasm, encouragement between laps, and for the lunacy to host a 50K event in the middle of June on the longest day of the year. If you ever get a super secret invitation to join in a Team Slug non-event, give it a go. Some great folks!
