Congratulations Patty! One week after running a BQ at the San Francisco marathon, she is out on the trails to tackle the Audi Power of Four 50k. The race takes place in the Aspen Snowmass mountains in Aspen, Colorado. A beautiful but difficult course with about 12,000 ft of elevation gain. That’s worse than SB 9Trails! Adding to the challenge, the race begins at 8,000 ft climbs above 11,000 ft twice; starting out with over 3,000 ft of climbing in the first 2.5 miles.
Patty is currently training for the Leadville 100 on August 20 in Leadville, Colorado. The San Francisco marathon and the Audi Power of Four 50k were tune-up races leading to her goal 100 miler. After two great finishes and a successful training season, she is ready for Leadville!
Patty Bryant: 9:44:50, 50th overall and 15th GP
