Black Squirrel Half-Marathon

A gaggle of Rocky Mountain Runners headed up north to the trails in Lory State Park (Fort Collins) to run Nick Clark’s Black Squirrel Half Marathon on Saturday Aug 31st. Here are a few shots of our runners on the beautiful (and brutally hot) day!

And, Malory, of course still rockin’ the trails like a natural – you’d never know this was her very first trail race!
