RESULTS 08-20-15 | Brackett and DeGuire Repeat Wins

BALLWIN, MO — Caleb Brackett and Aimee DeGuire finished 1st in their respective divisions (Men’s Open and Women’s Open) for the second straight week of Alpine Shop’s Summer Trail Run Series presented by Marmot. All runners were greeted with unseasonably cool weather for St. Louis in August – temperatures were in the mid-70s for the 6:15 PM race start. The course did not contain any grueling climbs, but featured a loose and technical descent in the final mile to challenge runners.

Caleb Brackett wins his 2nd-straight Trail Run.

Happy Birthday Darryl!

Happy Birthday Savannah!

Happy Birthday Savannah!

The race landed on the exact birthday of two runners, new 13-year-old Savannah Lesher and new 54-year-old Darryl Holman. Each of these runners are long-time Alpine Shop Trail Run Series entrants and we weren’t surprised that they chose to run trails on their birthday. Another long-time Alpine Shop Trail Run Series entrant, Randy Hill age 72, took a spill during the course but fellow runner Mike Skembo opted to halt his race and run with Hill back to the finish. Great sportsmanship was exhibited on the trails of Castlewood!
