Jeff Delaney Places 2nd Overall in Crested Butte Trail Run

Jeff placed 2nd in the Cart-to-Cart Trail race put on by the Crested Butte Mountain Runners. 9 mile (originally believed to be eight), but "certified" as 9 on Sat the 14th. The race offers a 17 mile option as well, 15 runners in each race.

Beautiful trail, though w/record snows this year still quite wet and muddy, with significant stretches of snow - footing sketchy.

1600' climb and 1925' decent, Crested Butte to Crested Butte South.

Jeff was second 2nd out of 15 in the 9 mile race with a time of 1:39:10.

First place was a 30 year old who finished in 1:24+, just a hair ahead of our own Jeff.
