Low fog hung over Pine Valley Ranch Park on race morning, limiting visibility and causing some pre-race chills partially attributable to my nervousness. I chatted with Ryan Denison (50 mi) Blake Wageman (50k) and Alexis Hanks (50k) after picking up my bib, discussing the heavy hitters that would be out there and what we anticipated course conditions to be like. I ran into some patches of snow during a course preview run a couple of weeks prior, but fully expected things to be melted out.
Our resident videographer, Nick Leuck, shot and edited some footage from Bighorn 2016 (with a little help from friends). Check it out!
The FRXC crew arrived in Wyoming in numbers to support, run, and party at the Bighorn Wild & Scenic Trail Run. Whether it was 100, 52, 32, 18, or no miles, the guys and gals were there to enjoy each other's company.
