As many of you may remember, a few years ago club member Rinaldo Cis had his number retired at the 100th Bay-to-Breakers in San Francisco because he beat the record established in the first race. At the end of July in Santa Cruz, Rinaldo ran the 6-mile Wharf-to-Wharf in 34:57, placing him in the top 100 male finishers out of approximately 16,000 runners. He was in the elite division along with the Kenyans and Ethiopians who typically win the event. Congratulations to Rinaldo!
Rinaldo’s greatest joy comes in running the mountain trails of Trentino. This past summer he participated in the grueling Dolomite Sky Race, a 10k up and 12k down race that starts and ends in Canazei in the Val di Fassa. The race is part of the Skyrunner World Series.
