The Rusty Nails team of Craig Thornley, Joe Steinmetz and Matt Keyes joined us for a live recording at The Auburn Aid Station in Auburn, CA, and we had a great time with them. In addition to learning about their backgrounds, we dove into the team's experience at the UTMB PTL event - a multi-day, 186 mile journey around Mont Blanc with over 80000 ft of climbing.
On top of that, our community really showed up with us to raise money for the Placer County SPCA. The SPCA has had a great need for additional funding to help them manage an influx of displaced animals due to the local Mosquito Fire. The fire has burned over 75000 acres in the Tahoe and Eldorado National Forests. With $250 of matching funds from The Mile 99, our listeners and community members brought the total up to nearly $900! THANK YOU ALL!
Anyone considering a trip over to any race during the UTMB trail running festival in the future, tune in to this episode!
