8o year old Bob Hayes finishes Le Grizz Ultra

Posted on July 4, 2008 by


It took him longer than he wanted, but Saturday was such a glorious bright and clear day to run 50 miles along Hungry Horse Reservoir that Bob Hayes wasn’t too disappointed to finish the Le Grizz ultramarathon in 11 hours, 4 minutes.

“It went OK, I finished OK and I feel pretty good right now,” said the 80-year-old runner from Evaro. “I was slower than last year. I’d like to think I don’t get slower, but because of age you do, and I did.”

I’m not even positive I can run a mile at this moment.
