Philicia Marion Wins the Burn 24 hour Challenge!

Over Memorial Day Weekend, the Burn 24 hour challenge took place in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. The Kenda/KMC/Hayes Team supported Philicia Marion, as she entered her first-ever solo 24-hour event. The race began furiously at noon on Saturday, with Philicia and another solo female battling for the first several hours. Many lead changes took place with neither seemingly able to hold onto a gap. Finally, as the night hours came, Philicia showed she could handle the challenge. Philicia was able to keep a steady pace with the help of teammates Robert Marion and Chase Dickens keeping her times through the transition area very short, many under one minute. As daybreak came, it was clear that Philicia would take victory, being ahead of any other competitors by more than 5 laps. She continued on and completed 23 laps of the 7.5 mile course in 23:11. Her effort also gave her a 6th place overall among the solo men competitors as well.
