2009 Karl’s Kanoe Trail Run Results

CAPT_KARL_LOG0_2009The third and final race of the Capt’n Karl’s race series took place over the weekend down at Inks lake state park just north west of Austin, Texas. The event had three distances to chose from and included a 10 km, 30 km, and 60 km.

The course consisted of 10km per loop with the 10 and 30 km racers starting at your typical early morning hour but the 60 km race had a bit of a twist with a 7 pm evening start.

I was not at the event but will try and share my interpretation of the race by looking at the split times. Wish me luck!
