2016 Bridgetown Athletes
Rob Hamrick, Ultra marathoner
“December 17th was the start of the Lookout Mountain 50 mile trail race. This was the race I had been waiting to complete for the last 24 months. I ran along sandstone bluffs, Civil War battle fields, waterfalls, had a few rope climbs and even some freezing fog, rain and wind. The race could not have gone any better. After three years of running Ultra marathons, this race was the first time without cramps. Must have been all those countless “monster walks” :) and newly improved strength in my hamstrings.
I can’t say enough about Mark and his entire team at Bridgetown. They impressed me last year and simply blew me away this year. I gave Mark a daunting task and he crushed it. I finished the race 48th/160th with a time of 10h44m with over 7,300’ vertical feet of climbing.”
