BERRYMAN 50-MILE & MARATHON (posted May 19th)

Congratulations to John Shelby for his 13:46:37 finish at the Berryman 50-Mile trail race in the Mark Twain National Forest on Saturday.  John placed 32nd (of 36) overall.

This was John's first competitive Berryman 50-mile finish.  Two years ago, he, along with Chris Boyle and Gary Braman, was a "course sweeper" for the 50-mile race, and followed the final finisher to the line in 14:38:33.  

Our running friend from Columbia, Andy Emerson, finished second overall in the 50-mile with a time of 9:47:10.  This was Andy's seventh consecutive Berryman 50-miler.  (Prior to his first 50-miler in 2012, he did the marathon in 2011).  He's always placed sixth or better overall, and has now finished second-overall twice. 

There were 36 and 78 official finishers of the 50-miler and marathon, respectively.  (There appears to have been a lot of no-shows and/or DNFs in the 50-miler.  About 75 runners were registered for it.)

SPIRIT OF MISSOURI RUN (posted May 19th)

Perhaps due to its poor execution last year, the Striker Life Half Marathon, 10K & 5K at Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster was replaced this year by the Spirit of Missouri Run.  The race was held in the same location, and got its name from the name of the first B2 bomber to be stationed at Whiteman.

Tesa Taylor of Eldon was our only Lake-area runner at the race, and she represented us well with an age-group victory in the half marathon.  Tesa finished in 2:35:33 and won the women's 20-29 age group over one other. This was her first half marathon of the year, and only her fourth since stepping up to this distance with three half marathon finishes last November.

There were 60, 70 and 120 finishers of the half marathon, 10K and 5K, respectively.  Compare those to 79, 61 and 35 finishers, respectively, last year.

JOPLIN MEMORIAL RUN (posted May 19th)

>

Congratulations to Jim McDermott, who, in his eighth consecutive appearance at the Joplin Memorial Run's half marathon, finally captured his first age-group victory.  Jim finished in 1:52:45, winning the 65-69 age group over two others.

The race results didn't list a city for many runners, so I may have missed some Lake-area runners.  Please let me know if I missed anyone.  (Heather Miller is listed in the results, but I'm not sure if it's "our" Heather.  There are several other Heather Millers in the state.)

Complete race results can be found here

Total participation dropped slightly from last year.  The addition of a 10K to this year's race appears to have been at the expense of the half marathon.  Here are the number of finishers over the last five years:

BRIDGE THE GAP TO HEALTH RACE (posted May 19th)

Willard Haley finished in the nick of time at the Bridge the Gap to Health Race half marathon in Quincy, Illinois on Saturday.  Willard crossed the finish line in 2:22:03, and reports that heavy rain and lightning moved into the area  minutes later, causing the course to be closed.  (That, of course, didn't stop 45 crazy runners from crossing the finish line within the next 30 minutes.)  Willard placed 9th (of 11) in the men's 55-59 age group.

Cierra Hiland, a frequent Lake visitor from Augusta, Illinois, and who's won many Lake-area races over the years, finished second overall in the women's 5K.  Her finish time was 23:29.

Two 74 year-old men battled to the end for the 70-and-over age-group win in the half marathon. They finished just five seconds apart, with the winner finishing in 2:52:27.

WEEKEND EVENTS FOR MAY 18 - 19

There are no races in the Lake area this weekend, or next.  Our next local race is the Run with the Cops, Not from the Cops 5K/10K on Saturday, June 1st.

Nevertheless, there are lots of big races going on around the state, with a few half marathons, a trail marathon, a 50-miler, a big triathlon, a 100-mile gravel road bike race, and a long list of 5Ks happening in St. Louis and Kansas City.

The race that many of us will be following this weekend is the (sold-out) Berryman 50-Mile and Marathon (UltraSignup page) (Facebook page) taking place on the Berryman Trail in the Mark Twain National Forest near Steelville and Potosi.  The race looks a little like a Trail of Four Winds 25K reunion, with at least twelve local runners and familiar names on the entry list, including:

50-Mile:

Chris Boyle
John Shelby
Colin Cronin
Andy Emerson
Karolina Zavisiute
Laurel Hill
Jon-Paul Laventure
Jeff Wells
Josh Amato (raced at 4 Fore 30)

Marathon:

Karen Hodges
Shawn Goertz
Cindy Rieckhoff

Most of the above will be doing this race for the first time.  Andy Emerson is the notable exception; he's done the 50-miler every year since 2012, always finishing between second and sixth overall.

RUNNING WITH THE COWS HALF MARATHON & 5K (posted May 12th)



Two runners from the Lake area traveled to the bucolic setting of Bucyrus, Kansas on Saturday for the tenth annual Running with the Cows Half Marathon & 5K

Jade Fletcher finished the half marathon in 1:52:23--slightly faster than last year--and won the women's 14-and-under age group (over 3 others), just as she did last year. 

Michelle Waters of Camdenton finished in 2:45:59, placing her 51st (of 81) in the women's 45-49 age group.

Click for the half marathon and 5K results.

GIVE 'EM THE BIRD 5K RUN, 1-MILE WALK & KIDS RACE (posted March 31st)

This year's Give 'Em The Bird 5K in Versailles is moving up one week.   In the past, it's always been held on the first Saturday in November.   This year, though, the race will be on Saturday, October 26th.   That's welcome news to our many runners who do Bass Pro, which almost always falls on the day after GETB.  This year, you'll be able to do both races, without having to scurry down to Springfield right after GETB to pick up your race packets at Bass Pro. (Actually, you'll be able to do both races once again in 2020, since the first Saturday in November--November 7, 2020--comes six days after the first Sunday--November 1st.)
