The 2013 GMARA MVP Health Care Bitter Pill race certainly lived up to its reputation Saturday in Northern Vermont.
Teams of two or three from around the country set their alarm clock for 5 a.m. to begin the insanely difficult course. The event, which celebrated its 10th anniversary, started at Camels Hump Mountain and ended at the Catamount Outdoor Center in Williston.
From weed wacking, to biking and swimming, this endurance challenge had a little bit of everything. In total 27 groups came out to test their mettle.
Craftsbury's Adrian Owens and brother Jonathan Owens had the top overall two-person time of 9 hours and 38 minutes.
In the premiere division, it was the coed trio of Dave Lamb, Jeff Woods and Meghan Smith from team Untamed New England whom finished first at 10 hours and 10 minutes.
As part of their win the team gets a free sponsorship to the US national championships.
