Thank you runner's and volunteers, for making the 2008 Afton Trail Run 25K and 50K such a great event.
Congratulations to the male and female winners of the 50K event. For their respective victories, Eve Rembleski and Joe Ziegenfuss have been crowned the 2008 Upper Midwest Ultra Champions. Awards for this honor will be given at the UMTR year end event.
The men's 25k record was in jeopardy as Ed Whetham ran like a man possessed and finished in 1:38:36 (that is 6:21 pace!), just missing Jason Finch's 2007 record of 1:38:10. These are world class times for this distance over this type of terrain, we are honored to host such talented runners. The women's (should we say young women's) 25K race was won by 16 year old Marissa Yovetich of Andover Minnesota. Simply unbelievable.
All 25K and 50K results have now been posted on our RESULTS PAGE.
