Dispatch from UTMB

Brought to you by COLUMBIA

With the CCC underway now for three-and-a-half hours at this writing, we have a few moments to quickly update you on the other races that have finished. Well, the 145K TDS and 56K OCC races wrapped up yesterday, while, aside from the first- and second-place teams, the crazies of the PTL—the two- or three-person 300K event with 80,000 feet of ascending—are going to wild places, in the mountains and in their minds!
