Golden Gate Canyon Trail 1/2-Marathon
Golden Gate Canyon State Park, CO
Sunday, September 26th, 2010
What a spectacular day for racing in Colorado. Great weather. Beautiful fall colors.
Two time runner-up Andy Ames led wire-to-wire. He was followed closely for the first 4+ miles, until Michael Trahan twisted his ankle and dropped out. Andy stretched his lead to almost 5 minutes at the finish.
Sarah Schmidt also led wire to wire, winning by almost 3 minutes over 2nd place female and 1st master Kristin Moreau.
At the finish, the runners once again enjoyed some great chili provided by the Peak to Peak Piranhas youth swim team. The awards were made by their swim coach, Jen Lavely.
