Nichols does Spain, Gute and Randall do Vail and Manning stays local in Colorado Springs

Team member Alex Nichols travelled half way across the world to Villaver, Spain--in the Ribargorza region of Spain's Central Pyrenees--to run the 2012 Skyrunning World Championships Trail Marathon on July 8. He placed 8th OA in 4:41:41 after taking a few falls on the grassy, rocky and mountainous course, "complete with 9 falls and a few near death stumbles", as he stated.

Tommy Manning competed in the Summer Roundup Trail Run 12k in Colorado Springs, the second leg of the Triple Crown of Running, where he placed 25th in 53:17 as he is preparing for the World Mountain Running Championships to be held in Ponte di Legno, Italy.
