Members of the 3rd Battalion 297th Infantry, from left, Staff Sgt. Derek Rabago, Capt. Wayne Mitchell, Captain Josh Shrader, Sgt. 1st Class Morris Carrillo, Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Roeber and Maj. Joel Gilbert, pose for a photo before running 12.34 miles from the Windfall Lake trailhead to the Montana Creek trailhead on June 14. This run started in 2003 as a "going away party" for Shrader, when he left for basic officer course. This year's run was dedicated to Gilbert, who is preparing to leave for a year of school. Shrader took 2 hours, 23 minutes; Gilbert took 2 hours, 38 minutes; and Mitchell took 3 hours, 12 minutes.
