Quad Rock 50-Mile and 25-Mile - Fort Collins, Colorado
The inaugural Quad Rock races were held Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado. Despite cool temps, times reflected what race director Nick Clark called a “burly” course.
“The race was a great success for our first go around,” says Clark, who is also an elite trail ultrarunner. “We were psyched to register a finishing rate of about 80 percent.”
Ryan Burch, of Fort Collins, Colorado, won the 50-mile race in 7:40:18, over six minutes ahead of runner-up Jim Rebenack of Arcata, California. Jenny Pierce, of Livingston, Montana, won the women’s division and placed 24th overall in 9:51:36. Pierce, who is running Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in June, bested Fort Collins’ Stephanie Lynn by over fifteen minutes.
In the 25-mile race, Daniel Goding of Loveland, Colorado, finished first in 3:33:14. Second-place finisher, Scott Jaime, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, crossed the line three minutes behind in 3:36:16. Fort Collins’ Eliza Walthers won the women’s race and finished 21st overall in 4:44:48, less than three minutes ahead of runner-up Kelli Picon, of Greeley, Colorado.
