Kettle Moraine 100 Mile Endurance Run
Kettle Moraine 100 Endurance Runs June 5/6, 2010
LaGrange, WI
100 mile run, 100k run, 38 mile fun run

Webmaster Mary and her dear friend Dennis Hanna completed their first 100 mile run.

After completing their first 50 miler in May, 2009, they set their sights on the 100 mile challenge. Logging thousands of miles on trails, reading every piece of advice from 100 mile veterans, the two carefully prepared for the event.

Dennis and Mary befor the start Race morning arrived with an encouraging forecast. Steady temperatures in the 60s and low 70s and a moderate chance of rain.

The steady temperatures lasted only a few hours. By early afternoon, the temperature climbed into the low 80s. Late afternoon brought a nice drizzle, which steadily increased into heavy rain and thunderstorms, lasting well after dark. Sections of the trails turned into ankle deep raging rivers of mud.

The heavy rains left the runners with extra challenges at night: soggy trails, lots of mud, huge unavoidable puddles, and drooping foliage that obscured the trail.

Of the 155 that started the 100 mile run, only 51 completed the 100 miles.
