SKAGGS wins ZANE GREY on a hot slow day! 6


PRELIMINARY RESULTS SHOW KYLE SKAGGS ON TOP! Young legs dominate the Zane Grey course as Kyle Skaggs hammers on a tough, hot day in Payson, Arizona. Temperatures were in the 80’s, and abundant sunshine burned all the runners in the infamous “Burn Zone”. Josh Brimhall to no surprise took second with the Rogue Runner (a.k.a. Hal Koerner) rounding out the top 3. Kyle’s time of 8:25 was nowhere near the record set by Dave Mackey in 2003. Brimhall was 30 minutes back at 8:55 and Koerner just missed going under 9 hours at 9:09. Emily Baer took the womens race running a cool 10:33, while Sue Johnston was a distant second at 12-plus hours. Our local hero Scott Mason slipped into 22nd place running 11:50. Check out the race website for further details or give us goats a few days to talk with the leaders to give a real race report from the front.

    Hi Scott….

    Good meeting you on the trail….unfortunately, the heat got to both Deb and I and we bailed. I stopped at Hell’s Gate after coming in right after you, then waited for Deb. She fell apart around the 50K mark, so we walked it in and called it a day. At that point we were only 30 minutes behind the cutoff, so it would have been a struggle for her to make it to the final AS.

    Chris,

    No, I didn’t make it down to ZG. I’ve been dealing with a bit of a hamstring problem since the week before American River (which I’d been planning on running as well, but obviously, didn’t), and though it’s gotten a lot better and I’ve actually been doing quite a bit of running, I didn’t think that racing for 8ish hours on it would be the best thing for it. However, I am planning on heading up to the Collegiate Peaks races this weekend and Jemez Mts a couple weeks after that.

    Congratulations to Kyle on the win in AZ, though!

    Tony,

    Thanks for the info. As a fan of Ultrarunning I was very interested in seeing you compete on a different style and more technical trail than Leadvile or RR. I really hope your hamstring holds up for upcoming races. I understand Jemez is suppose to be very challenging. Good luck and I really look forward to following your future endeavors.

    I saw the title and thought “wait a minute,I didn’t run that and I’m certainly not that fast”, then I saw the first name. Congrats to Kyle
