  • Breaking Trail and Grinding Gears: Local ultra runners, crust skiing and Chainbreaker results

    lift off time for ryan trebon at last week's webcyclery chainbreaker. McDonald Forest 50km Several of Bend's ultrarunners made the trek over to Corvallis to run the McDonald Forest 50 km ultramarathon this past weekend. Runners braved an impressive 6400 feet of climbing. According to local Chris Askew, who finished in 23rd place out of 184 entrants, "The race course was a good mix of single track and logging roads with several nice climbs. Some of the climbs were run-able, some were not. A bluegrass band greeting us at the finish line was definitely a nice touch." The Bend contingency also included Joel Wirtz, who finished in 8th place in 4:37. Evelyn Dong and Darla Brader were the 1st and 2nd place women to finish in 4:38 (a new course record) and 5:04, respectively. Other strong Bend finishers included Aubrey Robbins, Jon and Karen Gnass, Colleen Moyer, Al and Nancy MacInnis, Lana Turner, Mark Pearson, and Dan and Kathy Harshburger. Good job to all of you!
