We here in Southern Oregon are know for a few things; running shirtless yes, the other, claiming victory at Where's Waldo 100k.
Tim Turk, Neil Olsen, Erik Skaggs, and now Tim Olson have WW100k titles. Sorry Eugene, Corvallis, Bend, Portland (where are you) but you are nowhere close to the four titles we hold after the races nine year stint, heck all of you together don't have as many victories as Rogue Valley Runners. But I digress......
Back to Mr Olsen, his time of 9:25:04 is the second fastest time ever run on the ridiculous course and was supposed to be a training run for the upcoming Pine to Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run. I know he was a little worried about being tired for the event, but now I wonder who is worried about facing him at 100 miles. Surely I would be!
Big congrats go out to Ben Benjamin, Erin Keller, and Annie Crispino-Taylor for their performances, they represented Ashland proper!
More to come!
