Chuckanut 50K II

The lower mountain was relatively flat along the Interurban

The day started out dark and cold as runners descended into Arroyo Park and across Chuckanut Creek

Elite runners almost half way into the race and after almost 2000 foot elevation gain still find energy to smile and say thanks for coming out to shoot photos!

After running many successful marathons - the ultra distances lured.

1st place Geoff Roes, Nederland, Colorado

Geoff Roes was hugged by his girlfriend Corel LaForce
after setting a new course record. His time of 3hrs. 41 mins. 51 secs.
beat the old record by 7 minutes 48 seconds.

Michael Smith, 2nd place of Flagstaff, Arizona was greeted at the finish line.

Top 5 mens finishers. Geoff, Michael and Eric Stagg (#2) of Ashland, Oregon broke the old mens record.
Aaron Heidt of Vernon B.C was 4th and 5th was Tim Olson from Ashland, Oregon
