Fools 50K & 25K Trail Run

Wet and muddy trail conditions were the story of the 2010 Fools 50k & 25k Trail Run. The race started in 40F and overcast skies before a steady rain fell through the entire day.

Jonathan Hastings ran away from the field to easily win the 25k in 1:50:29 while Joan Cottrill led all women in 2:22:51.

In the 50k, three men bettered the old course record of 4:36 led by Mike Selig in 4:25:20. Beth Woodward repeats as 50k champion in 5:05:31.

Covered Bridge FA


The annual Covered Bridge FA, which is organized by the N.E. Ohio Trail Club, took place again today in Mill Creek Park (Youngstown, OH).  The official start time was 8am but some showed up at 6am for the optional early start.

The weather was awesome – 50 degrees with a cool breeze.  It only got chilly when it was raining and the wind picked up, but there weren’t many times when the rain was very heavy.  The trails were also in pretty good shape.  There was a lot of water and mud but about 95% of the ice on the trail had melted.  Much better than in previous years when the trail had solid inches of ice on it.

Here’s a list of those that participated:

4 Loops
Jim Harris
Dave Peterman
Todd Hanks
Bob Combs
Masahiro Yoshino
Tanya Cady
3 Loops (24 miles)
Brian Musick
Jamie Musick
Joe Novicky
2 Loops (16 miles)
Tim Knapp
Barefoot Johnny O
Brian (last name?)
Bruce McMurray
Pat Dillon
Gavin White
