It was a great day for racing at Lake Cunningham for the 50k trail race hosted by the GOATz. Ideal weather conditions and excellent race direction from Scott Giddings, Jody Green, and crew made the day perfect for all those running. Team Nebraska was able to take the podium with excellent running by Cory Logsdon, Justin Mollak, and Tim Langdon. Cory maintained a 5 minute lead on Justin and Tim. Cory's third loop sealed the victory as he only ran +3 minutes from his first lap finishing in a Course Record 3:39:29. Justin and Tim worked closely with each other running even laps. Justin finished 3:49:59 and Tim was less than a minute off coming in at 3:50:28. Todd Knott also had a top ten finish coming in 8th overall at 4:22:57. Emily Langdon ran the 21 mile race and was 7th female at 3:39:13. Congratulations to them for their hard work and determination!
