Susitna 100

Last weekend Daniel finished his first 100 mile race! He set off in -24 degree temperatures and battled head winds, snow and 15 hours of darkness on his journey across frozen Alaska. The route took him through Dismal Swamp, over the Wall of Death, past Scary Tree, and then back again. Oh, and did we mention that he was man-hauling his gear in a sled?!

The race started at 9am on Saturday morning and Daniel came in just before 9pm on Sunday night. He completed the race in 35 hours and 54 minutes, finishing 4th in the Men's Foot Division. He beat some of the gnarliest athletes in Alaska, picking up a cool belt buckle in true 100-mile style.
