Ellie Greenwood Scores Back to Back Wins at Chuckanut 50K

This past Saturday in Bellingham, WA the 20th Anniversary edition of the Chuckanut 50K was run in cold conditions with a mix of light snow and some rain.  Team Montrail and Team Clif runner Ellie Greenwood showed good early season form to take the win and to take another 3 minutes or so off her course record, set in last year’s victory.
