Another Lawrence area runner shines this winter! Congratulations to Amy Weidler-Hyten on the completion of her first 100 miler, the HURT 100. The Hawaiian Ultra Running Team's Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run (held Jan 13-14) is one of the toughest races. Amy finished strong thanks to a great Lawrence Trail Hawks support crew and pacers that stayed on top of everything and helped her cross the finish line ahead of schedule. About the HURT100
