Jemez mountain results

Jemez mountain results

Rick Hessek won the Jemez Trail Run 50 miler held Saturday over some rugged trails in Los Alamos, New Mexico in 9:15:35. David Coblentz, his closest pursuer was over a minute behind finishing in 10:26:19. Deb Pero took the women's title in 14:53:51.Erik David Skaggs beat out Nate McDowell in the 50 kilometer race, finishing in 5:19:31, by 18 minutes. Petra McDowell edged Sheila Van Cuyk to take first for the women in 6:06:31.

Complete results can be found at highaltitudeathletics.org.

We missed some top runners like Blake Wood who were busy coaching the high schppl tracksters at the state meet. Nrxt year we will hold the race a week later to accomodate more local runners. A total of 22 finished the 50 miler and 25 did the 50 km.The half-marathon had 49 finishers on a beautiful day.

This was the first organized 50 mile and 50 km trail runs in New Mexico and we hope to return next year. The RD tried his best but bowed out to Caballo Mountain and was a dnf. He will try the 50 km next year that might prove more successful than the longer race.
