Team Prairie Dog again competed as a two person relay team in the 26th anniversary of the Furnace Creek 508, a 508 mile course that is often called the toughest 48 hours in sport. Our 2009 time was 40:46:15. We suffered extremely high winds and what some are calling the worst weather for any 508 event.
