@Challengers, this run is going in the record books. On June 21st, Pete Kresock (@Petorius) completed the FLRC 100K Ultra Challenge, running all ten FLRC Challenge courses in a single 24-hour day. Unlike our first finisher, @Jesse_Canfield, Pete took the approach of getting up early to knock off a few courses before going home to take care of his twins and get them to daycare. Then he went out to Virgil for Forest Frolic and worked his way back east, hitting Thom B and Pseudo Skunk Cabbage during the heat of the day. Heat was the least of his problems as ferocious thunderstorms blew through the area, downing trees and branches and knocking out power all over.
I’ll bring the play-by-play discussion back into this thread for posterity, and I’m dying to hear Pete’s full race report once he recovers from this astonishing achievement. If my calculations are correct (and dropping out the extra mile on the East Hill Rec Way), it took Pete 11:59:58—amazing! You can check the numbers (pulled from Strava) here, and Pete, feel free to correct any that aren’t right for some reason or another.
I’d also just like to note that the FLRC 100K Ultra Challenge exists in part due to Pete having the idea independently. I’d been thinking about it, but having Pete come up with it too and say he’d do it was a big impetus in making it real. Thanks, Pete!
Now I really have to get those FLRC Challenge sign awards done!
