Oil Creek 100 Miler 15


What a great day in the Pennsylvania woods! Tom Jennings put on a triple header of trail races at the Oil Creek State Park, 50k, 50 miler and a 100 miler. This was a first year event but you would have never known by the great aid stations, course markings and overall organization of the event. The trail was a fast technical runnable course, but you had to be careful with those little up and downs (17,833 vertical), they wore you out as the day went on.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel after running the Wasatch 100 just 30 days ago, but it turns out I was able to hang on for a 21:50 finish – 7th place, I’ll take that on tired legs..! Race Results

    Scott, way to run strong even after a PR at Wasatch! How many is that for the year? 3? We still need to get in a run around PC before the snow piles up too deep. Again, way to go!

    Scott, Congrats, I wish I could have kept up w/ you, I ended up dropping at #3 aid station on the 2nd loop, I was becoming hypothermic, and dehydrated. Hope to meet up w/ you if I ever get out west, Enjoy the ski season.
