“Porter Middaugh dropped a mid-season stunner by racing to the second-fastest 5K time in state history at the SWL Championships, a clear precursor to his sensational final month of racing. Also an international-level triathlon and mountain-running talent, he emerged as perhaps the fastest-rising talent in the nation by season’s end.”
