Chase the Sun UltraStadium, Arena & Sports Venue in Savannah, Georgia
That's a wrap! Results are posted on UltraSignup!
Running Dog Ultras would like to thank all the runners, sponsors, and volunteers who came together and made this event such a wonderful experience. Everett Carson of Carson Footwear and Tim Waz of Grounded Running Beaufort made a big statement by supporting our little race, and we look forward to helping each other grow in the future. Y'all rock!
Chase the Sun Ultra saw some of the closest competition in our four years of rac...es between the 12-Hour solo and relay teams. Jennifer Youmans-Smith and Paige Ausec had an epic back & fourth battle that resulted in only 12 seconds difference at the end of 12-HOURS. Huge congrats to Paige Ausec for finishing with 47 miles alongside her husband Jesse Ausec who also finished first male 12-Hour! They both earned themselves a pair of Carson Footwear shoes, made 100% in the USA.
All four Savannah Striders relay teams were within one lap of each other nearly all day, but Strider Team 2 (Sara Maltby, John Durant, Allen Higginbotham, & Joel Moriarty) finished with an amazing 94 miles, less than a lap ahead of Strider Team 3 (Nicole LaPaglia, Alberto Iniguez, Ken Beasley, Scott Owenby @92.1 miles)
Kerry Dulina finished First Lady and first overall in the 6-Hour Solo event with 35.7 miles after nearly being chased down by Helen Anderson (33.8 miles)! Team RWB had a strong effort with David Bevins finishing first male with 24.4 miles because Tony refused to let him stop at 20. 🤣
6-Hour relay team Fast & Furious (Rico Estrada, Karl Joseph, LeeAnn Hill Somers, & Dave Ketron) pushed hard all morning and by 1PM they managed to rack up an impressive 48.9 mile to take the win.
Our competitors left it ALL out on the trail and we couldn't be more proud of what everyone accomplished! Thanks for making the 2017 Chase the Sun Ultra so wonderful.
All proceeds raised will be posted once we pay our bills, but we would like to send a special thank you to Christine for contributing a very generous donation beyond her race entry.
Much love to everyone and we can't wait to see you all at Mad Marsh 50k Ultramarathon in November! Until then, run strong and train hard! 🏃🏼 🏃♀️
