Alaska pair impressive in Transalpine (Running)
September 13, 2010
Soldotna’s Brent Knight and Brandon Newbould represented The Last Frontier like champions at the extreme European endurance race called Transalpine, a weeklong event that ended Saturday in Italy. They finished third in the ultra competitive international division, finishing behind teams from England and Germany. After basically running a marathon through the mountains every day for a week, the Alaska boys were ready to relax. “We were happy to retire to our van and share a bottle of champagne in cheap plastic cups,” Newbould said.
