The Cayuga Trail 50 Mile USATF Championships is in the books! What an amazing event and a great experience to be a part of! The RD Ian Golden & Red Newt Racing organize some amazing adventures in places that are truly inspiring.
Ithaca, New York was home to the 2015 USA Track & Field Championships and with a stacked field of competitors, it was a close race throughout the day. On Saturday, thunderstorms started to roll in, taking a hot & humid day that was well into the 80’s, down to the 40’s by Sunday mornings 6am race start. Perfect weather, but the course was now a bit more technical with the mud and slippery stairs.
