Chase the Throne, Round Three

January 16, 2021. 8:20am. Lake Merced, San Francisco, California.

Like bees to honey, a smattering of runners descended upon Lake Merced on a Saturday morning, each pursuing a mark for the semifinal round in Trials of Miles‘s Chase the Throne virtual race tournament. The trail running contingent, a few men from West Valley Track Club, and their supporters were off the line first. Lizzy and her entourage followed a few minutes after.

As each individual runner chased a fast time, there was an overarching feeling of camadarie, bolstered further by exceptional on-course support. Today, friends, teammates, significant others, and fellow racers helped competitors along.

In a week, one of these men and one of these women could be crowned the king and queen of San Francisco.
