Ice Age 50-Mile – La Grange, Wisconsin
The Ice Age 50, held in conjunction with a 50K and trail half marathon, was the second-to-last race in the Montail Ultra Cup (which concludes at Western States in California next month). Yet, despite the fast field, the course record of 5:54:4—set in 2000 by Daniel Held—survived.
Zach Bitter of Marinette, Wisconsin, won the race in 6:05:45—the second-fastest time ever on the course. Christopher Kollar of Missoula, Montana, finished second in 6:14:55, good for fourth all-time.
Denise Bourassa of Bend, Oregon, won the women’s division and placed 11th overall in 7:12:37, missing Luanne Park’s course record—also set in 2000—by a mere 54 seconds. Bourassa was over 22 minutes ahead of second-place finisher, Melanie Peters, of St. Petersburg, Florida.
A 24-year-old Scott Jurek ran the course in 6:23:15—now good for ninth all-time—in 1998, when he placed third.
