2019 7th Place Copper Dog 10 Dog 130 Miles
Always love this race but team was not ready imo, went into it a bit cobbled together but had fun, at least day 2 and 3:) Trail was softer and slower Friday night so the dogs wanted to settle into the Midnight Run trudging pace. Ran 9 Friday night and placed 8th. Day 2 went with all 10 and were the fourth fastest that day moving up to 7th overall. We always seem to have a better run day 2 and 3:) Day three down to 9 dogs with one getting sick roughly halfway into the run, he kept up but we went slower. I was thinking we had to have dropped in the standings but we had a good enough pace off and on to hold onto 7th place amazingly! wew! lol Unfortunately some of the dogs got really sick after the race and it went through the whole kennel in the weeks following the race. Sad to see the end of race season always but guess it was a good thing this year with the dogs not feeling well. Thank you to my dad and Julia Cross for handling for me!! They did a great job!!
