Paducah, KY   –   June 7, 2014

Hub City/LIFT Center team member, Scott Guthrie, and his good friend Derrick Spradlin, cross country coach at Freed-Hardeman University, ran as a two-man relay team in the Run Under the Stars (aka “Kentucky Derby”) at Carson Horse Park in Paducah, KY. After running 62 miles in a little over 9.5 hours, they spent the last ~30 minutes of the race running half mile sprint intervals in an effort to maintain their lead over the second place team. They finished with 64.5 miles and took first place by half a mile!
