Results are in for the Timberline
Mt Run. Many thanks to all the Participants, Sponsors, and Crüe!
First off, the Volunteer of the Year award goes to Ene Sokk. Also, we apologize
for missing a couple people during the awards ceremony. Kate Novakovich was the first female in the 60-64 category,
and Amy AL-khalisi (who graciously volunteered to hand out awards) was the first female finisher in the 35-39 category.
The initial awards are only exact in ratio to the number of beers we drink, but we've made sure everyone will get
Greg Mitchell, Thomas Ferrell, and Matt Dunlap scored the top three overall, as
did Sarah Dean, Abby Samuelson, and Johannah Ludington.
The team competition was fierce. This was the last race in Team Red Lizard's summer
series, so TRL brought five participants to score 5 points. Member Rick Lovett gained extra style points for running
through the finish line of OBRA's uphill bike race before finishing through ours. Our esteemed sponsor Oregon Active
brought up six participants to score 6 points, and Team X-Dog, comprising most of the Crüe, had 13 finishers
to score a total of 21 points.
The 2014 mountain running team champions, however, are Portland Running Company,
who, armed with a Nike Trail Running-sponsored party bus, brought 12 finishers who scored a total of 25 points.
Members will receive their team champion ribbons, and we'll send off their imprinted trophy. Team Meatloaf, who
matched TRL with five participants and 5 points, wins the Spirit Award. No hardware comes with the Spirit Award,
but we're with you in Spirit.
Thank you for joining us, see you next year! If you're up for another race with
some incline but without the altitude, don't forget about the Multnomah Falls Trail Run September 28.
