Crag Crest 2020

Crag Crest Trail was a popular place, much higher and cooler than the Grand Valley with its 100 degree temps, but none had as much fun as the 33 runners who ran the full loop. There were a few crashes per usual, one temporarily lost and a few down tree obstacles but nothing dampened the enjoyment for long. Ryan Sullivan swore he was just out for a fun run but, when Liam Earl got close to him on the far end, the competitive juices kicked in and Ryan turned on the jets to win with over a 2-minute cushion. Michelle Oberndorf, Erin Walter and Lexi Van Roekel finished together but, when the 10-second staggered start was figured in, Michelle had the fasted overall time. It is unconfirmed but highly likely that Savanah Drews, at 10-years old, is the youngest to complete this race. Bravo! And bravo to Edmund Paspali for celebrating his 50th birthday on the trail! Thanks to Dawn Gwin for help with timing, to Zealios for providing comfort creams and to Four Points for energy bars!
