Many thanks to our Participants, Sponsors, and Crew! Thanks to Timberline Lodge
for supplying us with pints of Mt Hood Brewing Company's finest, along with the best hotdogs this side of Dee.
Also, Food Should Taste Good provided plenty of assorted corn and multi-grain chips.
Kevin and the crew from New Heights Physical Therapy + were dynamite, helping
out with the first aid station, and making sure everyone had proper care with free massages and diagnoses. Thanks
also to Charles, Molly, and the Oregon Active team by manning the alpine aid station and giving Portland Running
Company some strong competition.
The X-Dog Crue, Kalvi, Foreman, Ene, Alar, Doug, and Baby A, were indispensible.
Avery, at just 11 months old, finished her first mountain run (and won her 0-19 age group) with the help of Daddy
Doug and a large packboard.
Runners came from all over Oregon and six other states, plus Canada and Australia.
Devin VansCoy took first place with a time of 55:32, and Eric Williams of Oregon Active was just three seconds
behind him. Kerri Lyons took third overall and the women's championship trophy at just under an hour, and Derek
Lopez of Portland Running Company placed third overall for the men, finishing in 1:01:08.
The Mountain Running Team Championship was a fairly tight race, with Portland
Running Company edging out Team Oregon Active. Honorable Mention goes to the Dirty Running Hotdogs, who placed
third overall, and had the largest number of finishers.
Get high with us again September 27 at the Multnomah Falls Trail Run.
