SAND MOUNTAIN, AL -- Taking extreme running to a completely different level, Friendship Christian School cross-country coach Greg Armstrong won the Vol State 500K early Monday morning, running some 314 miles in a little over three days.
A high school teacher at FCS, Armstrong teaches Biology, Bible, Environmental Science and Anatomy and Physiology. An ultra-marathon runner and iron-man triathlete and is the founder of Run 4 Water -- an effort to provide clean drinking water to undeveloped nations.
All told, Armstrong completed the grueling course with a time of 3 days 17 hours 50 minutes and 52 seconds.
His time was the third fastest in the race’s history and just eight minutes behind DeWayne Satterfield’s time of 3 days 17 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds, set in 2009, that was the untouchable course record for years before Georgia native Joe Fejes toppled it last year in 3 days 8 hours 10 minutes and 16 seconds.
Armstrong had a strong 2013 winning the inaugural Pistol Ultra 100, winning the Run Around the World 24 Hour with 130 miles, and a second place at the Run the Hard Way 24 Hour with 138.5 miles.
