 ultrarunner pal GREG HARDESTY
 on Big Baz & his "MAGIC" WTRS
 (Winter Trail Run Series).

 WTRS runners.

Big Baz has been running trails for decades! This 1984 picture is from their OLD GOATS running group
 while running the famous Grand Canyon R2R2R (Rim to Rim to Rim).  Big Baz is all the way on the right!
