Start of the Locomotion 12 Hour Race

Westbrook was one of 18 runners to start the 12 hour leg of the Locomotion 6 and 12 hour race consisting of 2 mile loops around Camp Jordan in East Ridge, Tennessee. The race started a little late at 7:33 am.

Richard worked himself into 3rd place and held that until the finish. He completed 56 miles in a little under 12 hours. His goal was 50 miles so he exceeded his expectations after coming off of low mileage days with a hurt foot. One 20 miler was the furthest he ran in training prior to this race day. At first, he hoped to complete 30 miles, then 40, and onto 50. He ran ahead of pace on the warm and sunny day, albeit crazy headwinds on the starting side of the loop.
