After a long cold night on the creek Allen and the Black Team pulled in to Central at 6.24am.
They will rest there for a bit before tackling Eagle Summit. Although the run from Central to Mile 101 Checkpoint is ‘only’ 28 miles there is one large obstacle in the way. Eagle Summit. It rises to 3685 feet over 8.5 miles. It’s a big climb for teams that have already run over 800 miles.
As if we weren’t watching the tracker enough already, this is the section of trail we won’t take our eyes off it, watching every inch willing them up and over.
More details as they come.
