Hot Time, Summer in the Trophy Series - Page 2

 


The women’s Ultra Division leader is 28-year-old Melanie Peters of White Lakes, Michigan. The former University of Miami track and cross-country runner and 2008 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier is leading the women’s division by almost 100 points. Even more impressive, she’s only run three ultras … ever. “I guess ultras were the next step,” she says.

And while her racing plans this summer include a few more Trophy Series events, she took home first at Wisconsin’s Ice Age 50 Mile, part of the Montrail Ultra Cup, securing her one of the last elite spots for the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in California later this month. Running Western is an opportunity she says she can’t pass up. Of her training now, though, says Peters, “I don’t have the slightest idea what I’m doing!”

For the top three in the Ultra Division and the leaders of the Non-Ultra Division (broken down by age group), see the compiled leaderboards below.
