Delacey Ramsey also has a claim to fame as having set the record for a race up and down Tenderfoot Hill in 1914, in his street clothes. Apparently he was at work at a downtown clothing store and spontaneously decided to join the race after being prompted. His record time of 15 minutes and seven seconds held for 60 years.News & Events, Salida, Tenderfoot Hill
