2016 Got Grit? Race Results

The sixth annual Got Grit?! obstacle course 5K drew 221 registrants to take part in the wet, muddy competition that tests participants’ strength, stamina, agility and balance.

Josiah Badger, 34, of Great Falls won the men’s division for the second year with a time of 24:20. Susanna Wermeaus, a guest of the DeBoo Ranch, won the women’s competition with a time of 31:51.

The Choteau volleyball club put the race on this year with help from many community volunteers and businesses. Choteau High School graduate Celie Salmond served as the race director, working closely with volleyball coaches Ann Funk and Carla May.
