The 2010 Delano Park 12 Hour Run took place Saturday, March 13 at Delano Park in Decatur. This run is a USATF certified 1 mile loop on a scenic, non-technical trail through Delano Park. This event includes a 50 mile run, a 12 hour run, and a 12 hour relay.
The idea behind the 12 hour run is to run as many laps around the 1 mile loop as possible in 12 hours. Partial laps do not count. The runner who runs the most laps in the 12 hours is the winner.
The only Limestone County finisher was Glen King of Athens. Glen competed in the 12 hour run. He ran 65 miles and was 6th overall!
The results are here.
