Miwok 100 km – CPTR – Cornbelt 24 Hour 2010 Results: TALON Athletes

As the ultra scene slows down in the region, I will try and extend my reach to provide some coverage of local athletes getting it done on the dirt and road outside of the TALON region.

To kick this concept off, last weekend TALON athletes were at Miwok 100 km, Collegiate Peaks Trail Run, and Cornbelt 24 Hour Run.

Collegiate Peaks Trail Run

Sitting at 8,000 feet, the cozy little community of Buena Vista, Colorado hosted the Collegiate Peaks 50/25 Mile Trail Run.

Collegiate-peaks-trail-run

Course description

Beginning and ending near the Arkansas River in Buena Vista, the course primarily follows single-track and Jeep trails along part of the old, historic Midland Railroad as well as through other scenic areas north and east of town. Encompassing great scenery and spectacular views, much of the course runs through lands managed by the National Forest Service and/or Bureau of Land Management…25-miler’s do the loop once (clockwise) and the 50-miler’s do it twice (the second time around, counterclockwise). Very much an up-and-down course, over 4,700 feet in elevation gain / drop is delivered in each loop!

The course profile looks similar to camel humps with a couple 800-1000 foot climbs.

Inspirational stories of the young at heart (Courtesy of the RD):

In addition to the main race, there were multiple events occurring within the race. Seventy year old Minnesotan, Ed Rousseau delivered just over 53 miles in 12 hours for a potential US record. … After several breaks, Ed continued to add mileage at a slower pace and ended the 24 hour period with 73.5 miles. Seventy-nine year old Iowa native Glen Zirbel captured attention as he laid down consistent miles to complete a total of 62.38 total miles for the event.

Amazing!
