Congrats to Tyler, Patty, and Mark on great 5k trail races!! Congrats Tyler on a first place finish! All three competed in the Elings Terrain Festival 5k. There was also a 3k for kids and a 3k for dogs. Maybe next year I’ll sign up for the 3k and see if they let me borrow a dog. 🙂 The Elings Terrain Festival is a fundraiser for cross country teams at the three local high schools: Santa Barbara High, Dos Pueblos, and San Marcos. The Elings Terrain Cup goes to the high school with the most paid race entries. Thus race turn-out is usually high. Post-race fun includes live music, food, and a beer garden (not for the high school students, just the parents).
Three speedy trail runners. According to their website, the course includes “dirt, sand, hills, switchbacks, grass.” Crest many of the hill tops and you’ll be treated to ocean views. Tyler flew through this tough course to finish first with a time of 18:37. Mark and Patty weren’t far behind with times of 23:11 and 26:44. Go team!
