I Ran Marathons Summer Ultramarathon – 2012 Results

On June 30th, a portion of the I Ran Marathons pavement running event included a 100 mile, 50 mile, and 50 km ultra scamper in San Antonio, Texas along the Leon Creek Greenway Trail. Early morning temps were in the mid 70s with south Texas humidity to keep it interesting before peaking in the low 9os.

A small but passionate group played at the event.

All courses appeared to be out-and-back and ran multiple times depending on your distance.

50 Mile

Women’s Race

Fumi Ishimatsu was the second overall finisher and top female earning the win in 11:08.

As is often the case in ultra events, there is always some individual wall you have to work through. Fumi’s showed up 70% into the race.

“I had fun running at the first 35 miles and then started to over heat. Running on the concrete was very challenging once the sun came out. I had a tough time getting enough water and keeping cool, I used a small towel around my neck and soaked it in ice water whenever I could find some.”

While an unexpected challenge is often part of the journey, afterwards the general vibe is often the same.

“Overall I had a blast.” 

Breanna Dullum was the only other female finisher and she knocked out the 50 miles in 15:13.

Men’s Race

Steve Escaler averaged a 10:43 pace to earn the male win in 8:56.
