Cinco de Redtube

On May 5th two of our members took on The North Face Endurance Challenge at Bear Moutain, NY in the Marathon Relay event. These two Wisconsin natives, pretty cocky, and slightly intoxicated, signed up for this four person relay as a team of two while sharing one or more pitchers of beer one night at Kettle of Fish. Nick Van Sicklen and Brogan Graham went on to win the event in a time of 3:11 by taking turns at the 6.whatever mile loop that North Face gave 5 of 5 stars for elevation changes and overall difficulty. The rainfall the night before and into the morning had made much of the single track trail into an oncoming riverbed. Racing under the team name “Cinco de Redtube,” NVS and BG were very proud to have Dean “The UltramarathonMan” Karnazes hand them their gold medals.
