From The LOOP to Boston: Race Results!

The second race of the Rogue Trail Series, The LOOP, took place on Sunday and was a huge success!

The dreaded thunderstorms stayed away and runners were treated to cool, overcast conditions in which to take on the rocky, challenging Emma Long trails. Over 250 runners competed in the 10K and 30K races, giving the spectators plenty of opportunity to cheer! Both Rogue and non-Rogues (though soon-to-be?) made up the tough field, and everyone seemed to have a blast. After hours of climbing hills, slipping on wet trails and dodging trees (all while smiling for the camera!), runners were able to relax with a plate of pancakes or tacos and an icecold beer right from the keg. When you take on a run like that, who cares how early you start drinking beer?

We saw tons of great performances, but these people came out on top:
