Jul 14, 2018 – Race day photos from Ron Nicholl from the front side (south slope) of Black Mountain
The front side of Black Mountain had always intrigued me. How do the leaders do the climbing and scrambling. I found out they do it just like everyone else, just faster and short of breath. Mainly, though, they resume running as soon as the climb lessens, with no walking to more level ground. It was very impressive to see the leaders and all runners for that matter found at my photo spot. …Ron Nicholl, 18 times Knee Knacker finisher
Ron flew from Alaska to take race day photos. He started his hike at 4:15am to get to this photo location and than went over to Panorama Park to take more photos. Kudos to Ron! Knee Knacker has certainly gotten in his blood.
Ron Nicholl’s first set of race day photos from the front side (south slope) of the Black Mountain is in this photo album.
