At race registration, one person stands out among the runners.
“I’ve got my water jugs, and my gun here," he gestures. "I’m ready to go hunting for rabbits.”
This man calls himself Eugene Skinner.
“Came out here, and started a ferry. Brought my family out here, and we thought we’d raise our kids out here,” he said.
With racing bib number 2549, he won the first “Eugene Skinner” look-alike contest. There was only one other contestant. Both will run in the 41st Butte to Butte run.
