WESTBROOK MADE IT! Everyone left, made it.

80 runners total completed the unforgiving 500K. Richard Westbrook finished at around 3:45ish am with a time of 9 days, 20 hours, 3 minutes, and 54 seconds. He was the last to finish and is now the only runner to have finished first and last for Vol State. His finishing quote:

“I’m never doing that again.”

    Congratulations Coach.

  2. William Bryan says:

    Congrats Coach. You’re a tougher runner with a broken toe than most of us are with two good feet!

  3. Patty Kraemer says:

    Way to Go Coach sorry about your foot that looks like it really hurts and Congrats on at least finishing the race

  4. Phillip McKibbin says:

    Hey coach. Any advice for a run of that magnitude? I want to run across Colorado in the next couple of years.
