Making Memories at our First Summit CatTrack 10K

CatTrack 10K 26013Whenever we bring a brand new event to Brundage, we always try to be ready for anything. That said, sometimes things happen we can’t predict! That was the case this Saturday as we welcomed dozens of runners for our first base-to-summit-and-back running event.

Things appeared to go smoothly for the runners, but there was a bit of drama right before the race began. The most memorable moment came three seconds before the start, when a bear came trotting across the bottom of Alpine, less than 50 yards from the race start.

In the starting photo you can actually see a couple people still looking up the slope toward the bear. (If that doesn’t make you want to run fast and stay with the pack, I’m not sure what does.) We wish we’d been able to snap of photo of the bear, but there are plenty of eyewitnesses to tell the tale for years to come.CatTrack 10K 03205

Other highlights of the race include the runners themselves: We had participants ranging in age from 12-64, and everyone who started the race, finished the race!

Jeremy Humphrey got first place with a time of 41:26 (that’s after running the Huckleberry Trot earlier that morning).
