RESULTS 08-10-17 | A Champion Once Again. Lyons Returns for 11th ORRL Win.

BALLWIN, MO. – Another week, another champion. This time it was a name we haven’t seen at the top of the board since 2013. Brian Lyons returned to the Trail Run Series for the first time in four years and put his name back at the top of the list for the 11th time in series history.

The youngest runner in the race, Callie Klucker, seems to have enjoyed her first race of the 2017 FITS Sock Co. Trail Run Series!

Lyons and last week’s runner-up, Caleb Brackett, were neck and neck for the first mile and a half before Lyons began to put some distance between the two later in the race. Lyons (37) finished the approximately 4.1 mile course in a time of 28:36.5 with Brackett (29) just 19 seconds behind. Josh Wright (39) took home third for the second straight week in 30:18.6. The only difference we’ve had in the top three after the first two weeks of the series has been the name at the top.

On the women’s side, Jamie Maher flipped the script from last week and moved from third to first (10th overall) in 35:18.3.  She was followed closely by Anne Gillespie, last week’s women’s champion in 35:34.8. Rounding out the top three was Go! St. Louis President, Mona Langenberg, in a time of 37:18.1.

On the Master’s side of things (50+), Michael Montgomery (56) moved up from his second-place finish last week into the top spot with a time of 36:20.6, good enough for 14th overall. Scott Schulyer (51) bumped up a spot as well into second just under a minute after Montgomery (37:14.2). Jon Schoenecker (55) finished the men’s side with a time of 40:08.6 For the women’s masters, Susan Richmond (56) followed up her win last week with yet another race on top of the leaderboard (44:26.20). Cindy Nelson (50, 50:30.0) and Sophia Lin (58, 50:43.0) followed in the standings.

The course was approximately 4.1 miles, featuring multiple significant climbs and a creek crossing. The third race in the series begins next Thursday, August 17 at 6:15 pm in Castlewood State Park once again. Individual race registrations are open on-line until next Tuesday here.
