Despite having rain for three days straight before the race the Limekiln-Cedar River Road was solid enough for a new course record! Alec Donahue shaved 1:15 off the old record, finishing in 1:46:22.

We all owe the Inlet and Indian Lake Highway crews thanks for making the road better every year. And thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors and racers for yet another record-setting year!
