Tag Archives: Montara Mountain 50K
The Mt Mitchell Challenge in North Carolina is a 40 mile route with serious elevation gain (climbing nearly 5,000 feet!) on the tallest mountain on the eastern seaboard. Dave Mackey (Hoka) and Dominic Grossman (New Balance) had a strong showing with Dave pulling in 1st finish at 4:38:13 and Dominic 3rd for Mens in 5:02:37. The course had to be altered due to ice conditions so while Dave was dominating the record we may have to witness him racing it again to beat the full course record in ’14.
