Kenny Frith caught a fast ride to the finish line of the American Discovery Trail Marathon with the help of about 50 AFA cadets. (We'll keep you posted on his official time) Here the story of Kenny and his father, Gary: A year ago, Gary and Kenny Frith were the talk of the American Discovery Trail Marathon. Gary, a retired Air Force Academy graduate (1978), pushed Kenny, his son who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, in a large wheeled jogger for the entire 26 miles to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs. But Gary has bigger plans this year. He has enlisted the help of about 50 of his old AFA squadron mates. The plan is to push Kenny to a new ADT Marathon record on Sept. 6. Read it here.

The ADT Marathon Expo totally rocked. Met a lot of cool people. Talked running all day and we got the word out about PikesPeakSports.us, your grassroots connection to running, riding, hiking and climbing in the Pikes Peak Region. Special thanks to the Boulder Running Company and ADT Marathon race director Sara Wulfkuhle who invited us to be a part of the Expo. Photo: Marc, Sara, Halee and Christian Wulfkuhle.

And we're selling our new PikesPeakSports.us running shirts - they're playing to wide applause! PikesPeakSports.us member Trudy DeCoronado could not resist. (Thanks Trudy)!

GIVE IT UP FOR THE LADIES: The 2009 American Discovery Trail Marathon Relay was won by the all-women's team of Amy Regnier, Ashlee Nelson, Elizabeth Watkins and Connilee Walter (right) in a race-record time of 2:56:01. That's the overall relay record ... you know, faster than the men...yeah. And the record will stand for another year as no realy teams beat it in 2010.
