The 2nd annual running of the GO! Missouri KT82 was another great event, as close to 200 teams started, some as early at 5:00 am on Saturday, September 5 and spent the day traversing 82 miles on the scenic Katy Trail.
The race started in Creve Coeur, MO, and finished in the heart of wine country – Hermann, MO. This year’s weather was a challenge for all runners with temperatures reaching the mid-90s, but runners persevered, pushed fluids, and made it to Hermann for the celebration!
Capturing a repeat title for 1st overall team was Smells Like Team Spirit with a time of 9:10:46. Incredibly, their time was only 20 minutes slower than their winning performance in 2014 – in very tough racing conditions. The first team to finish in the Ultra Division (3 person team) was The Mizzou Milers with a time of 11:38:32.
Once again, the city of Hermann, MO was a fantastic venue for the finish line celebration which included dinner catered by Hermann’s own Wurst Haus, wine from Hermann Wine Trail wineries, and beer from sponsor Michelob ULTRA. The warm conditions may have cause some reduced speed, but did not keep runners from celebrating the accomplishment of this great team event.
