Here are some more pictures from the 2011 North Shore Challenge. These ones are from the distance race on day 2. The start was late and I was on a time schedule. The launch was from the Kawela Bay side of Turtle Bay and finish was at Haleiwa. Since the race started late, I had to leave before it finished.

I ended up going to Shark’s Cove to see if I could get any pictures but unfortunately the racers were really far from shore. I could only see them through the zoom lens of my camera. Mark Raaphorst hurt his shoulder in the races the day before so he wasn’t able to do the distance race. That was a smart decision since rotator cuff surgery #3 in 2 years would not be good.

The racers were so far from shore that I couldn’t make out who was in the lead. Was it Connor? I didn’t remember him wearing all black and sporting a water backpack? Turns out it was Andrew Logreco in the lead and Livio Menelau in second.

Andrew Logreco is an animal. After one of the Hawaii Kai to Waikiki (10 miles or so) races, I saw him run back to his car…BAREFOOT. I even heard he ran the Honolulu Marathon barefoot but I’m not 100% sure.
