The Capitol Peak 50 mile, 55K, and Relay results are now posted on the website: The weather was finally nice to everyone out there, especially those who returned from suffering in last year’s snow madness, and the previous year with the “thorny carwash”! All I can say is… it’s about time! Hopefully the weather is this nice this same time next year!! There were record breaking performances on all levels, which I posted I a new link on the website. Van Phan broke her own course record by 51 minutes, with a time of 8:58. And Jim Kerby, after winning Mt Si 50, 6 days previous, also came and claimed the Capitol Peak crown and broke the course record with a time of 7:31. The 55Km also saw outstanding performances with Allison Hanks setting a new course record of 6:12, and John Berta setting a new course, beating the entire field by almost an hour, with a time of 4:58. John Berta was also the “First to the Peak”, which was the first to summit Capitol Peak at about mile 22 and then finished. We also would like to recognize our 1st seniors who were Max Welker in the 50 mile and Kent Holder in the 55Km. The 2-person relay “Team Slow Boy” which included Benjamin Chafflin and Tom Maciukena, proved their name wrong, by running just shy of the relay course record in a time of 7:13. And as far as I know, all Capitol Peak repeaters PR’ed by a long shot! Congratulations to everyone who finished or gave it their best to attempt in this year’s Capitol Peak Ultras!
