All the results from the trail and ultramarathon world over the weekend, courtesy of Justin at iRunFar. Big standouts for me were Avery Collins’ win at Grindstone, Liza’s win at Tussey Mountainback, and the 19yo who beat Tayte Pollman in a Sky Race. I’ll add one more race to the mix: The Bay Ridge Endurance Run (formerly Dick Collins 50) in Oakland. Results here. Solid work by Alexander Kramer and Devon Yanko (2nd OA) for the 50M wins.
