|2015 RIDDLE Run Champion|
"A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame and money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well." - Gilbert Keith Chesterton
One way or another, this local run continues to exist. The Riddle Run 28-mile fat ass lives on for yet another year! On the last Saturday in January, we'll experience the 17th Riddle Run. Two local runners, myself and Tom Rice, have run them all. We plan on keeping the streak alive...and the spirit of the original fast ass runs. No fees, no awards, no aid, no whining. Just run and enjoy.
Jeff Riddle, founder of this run back in 2000, has a nice history of the event through 2013. I organized from 2014 to today. Here are the champions for each year:

I'll be at Lake of the Woods trails on January 30th, but I don't have any hope of doing well. No fame or money either. I'll just run. That's enough.
