2008 Factiods

  • 8 of 11 2007 finishers returned
  • 3 dropped down in distance
  • 3 DNF'd
  • 2 finished the 100K- Ryan McKnight and Kate Merrill
  • Ryan McKnight took 1:37:20 off his time and went from a tie for 3rd to a new course record
  • Kate Merrill other took 1:08 off her time and dropped from 8th overall to 9th! That does not seem fair.
  • DNF rate was about the same rising from 21% to 25%.
  • Of the 5 early starters 1 made it and 4 DNF'd
  • Only one of the DNF's started at 7:00
  • This year due to record snow fall the trail and tunnel being blocked the course was altered. Net result was more up hill and double the pavement. Distance run on sidewalks and pavement was 6m (9.5%) this year (90.5% trails).

2008 Race Reports

  • Lisa Bliss' secret recipe - 'It's a low-keyed, very-well organized run with a 50k option.'
  • Tim Lawson - 'If every bad run is just a good learning experience, why don’t I teach this stuff?'
  • Robert Lopez - words from a 50K runner - 'it's local, it's cheap, and the course is beautiful'

Van Phan
Van steams across the finish line for first place in a time of 10 hours and 23 minutes.

Van Phan and Tony Covarrubias
Van had about a 15 minute lead on Tony until the last half mile where a navigational snafu provided some excitement and cost her 10 minutes. Tony came in 2nd behind Van at 10 hours and 28 minutes.

Sean Meissner
Sean was our single lonely 50k runner: he cranked out a respectable 3:34 50k. Nice.
