Rock/Creek Race Team Strong in September

Rock/Creek Race Team Members Nick Whited and Josh Wheeler are keeping the steam engine rolling with two very successful finishes at last week’s 2009 Odyssey Trail Running Rampage for The Marathon and the 40 Mile Trail Ultra which took part in the gorgeous Douthat State Park, VA.
Whited intended the marathon run to be a training run, yet still came in under the course record of 4:03:45 with a second place finish of 4:00:33 for the Trail Marathon. Wheeler cruised in with a strong first place finish of 6:03:10 for the Ultra Marathon 40 miler.
In addition to these races, Nick Whited just reported a 4th consecutive win at the fourth annual Brian A. Delp Memorial 5k and 2 Mile Walk [Story from Bluefield Daily Telegraph]. Whited finished with a time of 16:59. He was 2 seconds off from his personal record time in 1999. He simply said this was setting a good tone for the JFK 50 Miler in November if he can stay healthy.
Thank you Josh and Nick for sharing your accomplishments and we look forward to hearing how your season wraps up through winter.
