2018 Last Annual Vol State 500K Results

Maughan on ‘The Thrown’ – titled as such because after every sweaty, nasty, gross runner sits in it upon reaching The Rock it has to be thrown out!

Grant just a couple months ago scaled Mount Everest. He has one of the toughest and most impressive race resumes in ultra-land. He now will drive across the country to start the Badwater 135 on Monday night where he already has 5 consecutive finishes.

All hail King Dingofish!!
