A shout out to Team NYARA members Chris Rice and Austin Planz they have both been out there braving this crazy winter…and bring in some pretty impressive results! Austin has been training in freezing, snowy Connecticut to race in the desert. He recently finished a solo stint at the 24 hours in Old Pueblo outside Tucson. He finished 15 laps (around 243 miles!!!) and was 11th in class and 17th overall in the solo division. Awesome job, Austin! Check out the race preview video here:
Chris has also been training like crazy in the arctic weather — and its paying off! He recently finished the FebApple Frozen Fifty, which is part of the NJ Trail Series, in 4th place overall. This is a grueling 50 mile trail race — which lived up to its name this year. Great job, Chris!
