Congratulations to all who completed this past weekend's 4th annual Quivering Quads II trail race!  The weather was picture-perfect for 8.1 miles of running on the mostly single-track trails within Cuivre River State Park.  Great swag, a pumpkin decorating contest, an awesome post-race BBQ, and the all-around relaxed vibe added to the fun.

This year's race sold out all 525 entry spots, making it the most competitive QQII, yet.  Andy Hicks, the 3rd place finisher in 2016 and 2017, won this year's race in a time of 55:09.  John Cash and Michael Southworth were the other two podium finishers.  Fleet Feet massage therapist Hannah Floyd won the women's race in a time of 1:04:07.  Theresa Coverick and Amanda Knabach were next across the finish line.  Click here for complete results.

Race Director Jules Vogel is greatly thankful for the Fleet Feet Race Productions team (Chris, Hannah, Kylee, Jake, and JR) , for the many, terrific volunteers and Fleet Feet employees who helped bring QQII to life, for iTap, who provided the beer for the post-race party, and to Cuivre River State Park's Rangers, who provided logistical assistance, including making sure the trails were in great shape!

Next year will be the 5th anniversary of Quivering Quads II.  Save the date of Saturday, October 26th, 2019, and follow us on FacebookTwitter or Instagram for race announcements!  Before then, however, we have some great opportunities for you to race with us, including some great trail options.  Come race with us!
