Photos: Race for DFL

The inaugural Race for DFL last person standing event took place Oct. 12-13 at a farm in Pelham, Mass. Runners took on a 4.25-mile loop course that was almost entirely singletrack trails in the woods. They had one hour to complete the loop and be back at the starting line to begin the next, with a new race beginning on the hour, every hour, until only one runner remained. A full photo gallery from this event can be found on the MassUltra Facebook page at this link. The following are just a few photos from that gallery. All photos in this gallery are by Chris Wristen/MassUltra.
