Highland Lakes Challenge '08 — Inks Lake
October 23, 2008 -- Highland Lakes Challenge.


A gorgeous Texas blue sky day marked the 2nd stage of the Highland Lakes Challenge, a five day swimming stage race held in the upper Highland Lakes, just outside of Austin, Texas.

Support crew and swimmers both enjoyed the course, which started off the shore of Inks Lake State Park and paralleled the shore of Camp Longhorn, on Inks Lake. The 2.6 mile course seemed almost a breeze after yesterday’s 4.4 mile trek across Lake Buchanan — a race which included sizable winds as well as the constant threat of thunderstorm.

In today’s race Collis Williams (38) again led the pack with a finish time of 1hr, 46 seconds. Cumulative finish times for Monster Challenge entrants for Stages I and II are following:

1 — Collis Williams (38), 2:51:03
2 — Dave Barra (43), 3:00:42
3 — Keith Bell (60), 3:02:14
