Team Montrail: Mt. Cheaha 50k – post-race update

Congratulations to all the finishers of the 2010 Mt. Cheaha 50k in Alabama. This past weekend, good weather and great trail conditions greeted the runners as they took to the single track trails and headed up to the high point of Alabama, Mt. Cheaha.

Special shout-out to Montrail speedsters Annette Bednosky and Jill Perry. Annette came down from NC after several weeks of little to no trail running (winter weather), and cruised to a new female COURSE RECORD, 5:09:41. Jill Perry had a nightmare of a time getting to Alabama from New York, with fierce winter weather delaying and canceling flights left and right. After very little sleep, Jill ran the race and was 2nd place female, 5:26:03.

Read Annette’s race report below, and Jill’s can be found here.

Thanks to Todd and the rest of the Mt. Cheaha 50k crew and volunteers for putting on such a great event.

Next up for the Montrail Ultra Cup: Way Too Cool 50k on March 13th. See you there!
