Ruth and the Red and Black 200 Team scratched from the Two Rivers 200 earlier this morning.
Allen and Aliy went to pick them up not far from where our teams camp during training runs. I’m not certain of all the details at this point but I know everyone is okay. As I understand it, Ruth felt that continuing on the final 30 miles would turn the fun and positive experience they’d had up until that point into a negative one especially for the youngsters. She officially scratched at Angel Creek Lodge checkpoint (the last checkpoint she was at).
We’ll get all the dogs and Ruth home, get another meal into them (Ruth will have given them a good meal at her camp spot) and get everyone to their beds.
