Holy cow!! A top-10 finish at the USATF 50k Trail Championships!

Stephanie Ward ran incredible at the USATF 50k Trail Championships, finishing 9th overall and winning her age group! This is the first USATF Championship top-10 finish for the Dukes in several years!

Stephanie traveled to Bend, Oregon to compete against some of the best trail runners in the nation! Stephanie finished in 5 hours and 56 minutes.

Great job Stephanie!!

The Dukes race in Dallas, TX!

Reppin' the New Mexico Blue and Red!

Tony Clement and Sal Perdomo traveled to Dallas, TX to compete in the 2014 Tour Des Fleurs 10k. Race conditions were not ideal due to the high humidity that plagues Texas during the summer and early fall, but that didn't stop Tony Clement from taking the W! Tony beat some very fast competition to win the 10k in 31:28! Sal Perdomo finished 7th in 33:14, 2 spots out of a cash purse finish.

Two Lady Dukes Race at the Imogene Pass Run!

Stephanie Latimer and Lauren Patton traveled to southwestern Colorado to race the famous Imogene Pass Run, a 17.1 mile point to point mountain race starting in Ouray and finishing in Telluride, Colorado, passing over the Imogene Pass (13,114 ft).

The ladies braved the trecherous terrain, rocky underfoot, lush forests, leg cramps, and severe inclines, and still ran like champs! Stephanie finished as 45th overall female (7th in her age group) in a time 3:29:28. Lauren was 150th overall female (24th in her age group) in a time of 4:00:10.

Good job ladies! Maybe more Dukes will participate in the future!
