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.
