SAARI SHATTERS 6-YEAR-OLD DOME ROAM COURSE RECORD


In the ninth running of the Murphy Dome Roam, Matias Saari, 34, who lives just up the hill from the course, used his home court advantage to win in 1:06:37, shattering the old course record of 1:08:09 set in 1999 by Kevin Brinegar. Under prime weather conditions for running – cool and overcast at the start – Brinegar, 36, took second, also besting his previous record, finishing in 1:08:04. Third to cross the line was 19-year-old Chris Eversman in 1:10:22, followed by his training partner, 21-year-old Weston Forsblad. Fifth overall was Chad Carroll, 34, in 1:12:41.

A record 72 participants took part in the race Sunday morning, which featured a hilly 11-mile loop course which runners had the option of traversing in either direction.

The top two women ran in opposite directions and so couldn’t tell who was ahead in the battle for first place. Mara Bacsujlaky, 44, was very happy to find out she’d won, besting 26-year-old Leslie Almberg, 1:27:19 to 1:29:18. In third place was 29-year-old Sue Seitz at 1:30:20, followed by Lisa Beattie, 34, in 1:31:23 with Sandy Kimbrell, 42, in 1:32:36, rounding out the top five.

The same type of battle ensued for the red lantern, the prize for the final finisher. Bob Perkins and Bob Hildebrandt ran in opposite directions, and in the end, Perkins finished a minute ahead of Hildebrandt, who was awarded the Coleman red lantern key chain.
