Kailas Kokare Unknowingly Kicks off 2018 'Pink Shorts' Tour at Bix 7

Kailas returned to Iowa this past weekend to race in the Quad-City Times Bix 7. Setting a new PR and Old Zealand national record, Kailas finished the seven mile race in a blazing 34:44, good for 13th place and first finish by someone without elite race entry (also beating out our good friend Elite Collin from Philly). To commemorate Kailas, our upcoming fall season has been appropriately named the Pink Shorts Tour in his honor, in reference to his trademark pink running shorts. Kailas's intense racing grit was flawlessly captured in the photo below...ironically enough not pictured, his trademark pink shorts.
