NEO TC Members Shannon Fisher and Roy Heger are the Co-Directors of Run With Scissors Marathon and Double Marathon, held October 30, 2011 in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
There were many NEO TC members who turned out to share a nice day in the parks. The trail conditions were less than stellar. The wettest fall in Cleveland history caught up to the runners who experienced mud, mud, and more mud.
Dave Peterman came in second in the Double Marathon, skating his way through the mud in 9.25.
Other NEO TC runners who completed the Double Marathon were:
Todd Hanks:11.26 This was Todd's first distance past a 50K. Congratulations Todd. Now you need to run a 50 mile course in less mud and see really how fast you could run it!
Ron Ross 12.13
Shannon Fisher 13.11
Paul Lefelhocz 13.41
Marathon Finishers at RWS were:
Courtney Russell 5.17
Brandon Russell 5.17
Christine Tokarz 5.17
Roy Heger 5.34
Bill Wagner 5.36
Tara Schweitzer 5.43
TJ Hawk* 6.17
Kim Love-Ottobre* 6.42

* were runners that started the Double, then decided they had enough of the mud and stopped after one marathon. Roy's race allowed credit for dropping down to the marathon distance.
Course was very well marked and great volunteers at the Aid Stations. Other than too much mud, a great day in the CVNP!
