For the fifth time, Aaron Pike takes home the Grandma’s Marathon Men’s Wheelchair title. Pike, from Park Rapids, MN finished with an unofficial time of 1:27:34.

He says he still has a little bit of nerves because the race is a high-paced race.

“It’s going to be a tough one, there’s not a lot of climbing but you are averaging 19-20 mph on the really fast days,” Pike said. “Today, was just below that. It was kind of a no-wind situation for most of it.”
