Zane Grey

It is billed as the toughest 50 Miler, and it’s this Saturday. The race definitely attracts some talented runners — I see that Anton Krupicka, last year’s Leadville winner who holds the second fastest course time next to Matt Carpenter’s record-breaking performance in 2005 will definitely challenge Dave Mackey’s 7:51. Also can’t ignore Karl Meltzer or Hal Koerner, and a few others who I can see in the lead pack.

Will any of the women beat or come close to Nikki Kimball’s 9:14? Tania? Sue? Olga?

Can’t wait for the results — hopefully I’ll make it back out of the OC this Saturday to see them.

  1. It’s unfair to expect breaking times for CR – we are running opposite direction this year, 1500 feet less climb. That said, and considering my still not up to par with my fitness, I have a pace chart for 11:30. 11 hrs would make me really happy:) Think of me!

  7. Looks like Olga had a great run.Not a lot of names that pop out at me. Goggins was down on the list, that’s certainly a surprise. Pam Reed, in a home towner.
