June Featured Athlete – Our Newest Ultramarathoner

The Team G(race) featured athlete for the month of June is Russ Shurtz. Russ completed is his first ultramarathon in June, Another Dam 50k in Englewood, Ohio. He finished the 4 loop course at Englewood MetroPark in 6 hours, 7 minutes and 32 seconds.

Russ at the 50kRuss is an experienced runner who has run many half and full marathons.  This year he decided to challenge himself by attempting to run four marathons throughout the year. In January, he ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Arizona, and when he was looking for a marathon to do in the spring, he thought he might as well do an ultra.  The next race he is training for is the Air Force Marathon in September, where 7 other Team G(race) members will also be running the full, with a few others doing the half.

Congratulations on your first ultramarathon, Russ, and good luck with your next two marathons!
