DAVID'S TRAIL ENDURANCE RUN (posted January 19th)

Eight of our Lake-area runners traveled to Mountain Home, Arkansas on Saturday for the fourth annual David's Trail Endurance Run (Facebook page).  It was a brutally cold race, with temperatures dropping from near 40 at the start to the upper 20s by early afternoon.  Adding to the misery were rain, light snow and strong winds that brought wind chills down to the upper teens. 

Chris Boyle took third overall (of 35) in the 50K, finishing in 5:21:27.  (Amazingly, the overall winner crossed the finish line one hour ahead of Chris.)  

The next of our locals to finish was Aaron Koeppen, who finished in 6:38:32. This was Aaron's first ultramarathon.

John Shelby stepped up to the 50K distance this year, after doing the 25K the past two years.  It paid off with a victory in the men's 50-59 age group with a 6:49:57 finish.

In the 25K, Mary Boyle, Katie Roberts and Stacy Roberts ran and finished together, in 3:47:00.  This may have been Mary's first-ever 25K.
