Winston Rasmussen Measures 50 Mile Lakefront Course


Winston Rasmussen, Official Race Course Measurer, discusses the importance of riding on the tangents when measuring a course.

“The biggest reason runners often complain about courses being long is because they don’t run on the tangents. When I measure, I’m always looking for the next turn and aim straight for that turn to make sure it’s even,” he says.

Holly's running career began in high school; after being bummed about not making the volleyball team her sophomore year, she decided to join some of her middle school friends on the cross country team. She also did track in the fall, where the 1600 m race was her niche. Since then, she has run several shorter distance races and two half marathons. Her goal for 2017 is to try a triathlon, and eventually do the Chicago Marathon. She graduated from Illinois State University in May 2016 with a degree in journalism. Working at Chicago Athlete, Holly has been able to explore photography a lot more, which is one of her main hobbies. She enjoys taking photos at endurance races, and is also passionate about nature photography and portraiture.
