The female winner, for the second time, was Cheri Becker and the male winner was Travis Redden (the race director for the first 2 years of the race). Thank to all the particpants and to everyone who volunteered setting up the flags on the course, keeping score, keeping the fire going, bringing out food, creating the cool awards, and taking pictures!

Last Man Standing
Last Man Standing starts at 8:00 am on Saturday, January 7th, 2017.
Remember, this is a SELF SUPPORTED race. You need to bring your own water, food, first aid, and anything else you think you will need.
The only thing provided at the race is a porta potty, provided by Metro Tri Club.
The course has a small hill or two, but is a mostly flat 4.1 mile loop.
Try to get there a little early to check in and get a race bib, see everyone next Saturday!
Here's some photos, by Jim Donahue, from a previous Last Man Standing event.
