Western States 100 Results

The race is over. It sounds like the runners had much cooler weather this year. We'll have to wait until they return to hear the "real" stories.

Steve Dewald was the first Hawaii finisher at 26:35:34
Former Hawaii resident, Judy Carluccio finished at 29:28:53
Cheryl Loomis finished at 29:35:33.
It appears Jeff Huff had a really tough day and pulled out at about the 55 mile mark.

Other runners to note: The race was won overall by Hal Koerner with a time of 16:12:16. Hal is from Ashland Oregon. The women's winner and 8th overall goes to Nikki Kimball of Bozeman Montana with a time of 18:12:38.

Hawaii native and HURT 100 finisher, Rod Bien finished 11th overall with a time of 19:20. David Goggins, also a HURT runner finished at 20:52:49. David is running Badwater in a few weeks and if I was him, I would have left a little in the tank for that upcoming race.

Congratulations to all the runners.

We can't wait to hear more of the details. Hopefully all of the Hawaii runners will be at the Kaena Point Firecracker 10 Mile race this coming Saturday and we can talk with them firsthand.

Way to go Steve and Cheryl!!! You are making HURT and Hawaii look good. We are all proud of you and your accomplishments. You've trained long and hard for this one and deserve some time off (though I know you're probably not going to take it.) And Huffer - sometimes it's just not the right day to go out for a really long run - but you're a really cool guy anyway. See you on the trails.

Great results! I heard a rumor that Steve was talking with Jeff when a wild boar appeared. Jeff started running back to Squaw Valley and saw Cheryl coming at him. He then ran with Cheryl until she found him going too slow, and tripped him where he promptly forgot his name. When Jeff came too, all he could remember was a lady with bright shorts and a man with a long pony tail. The WS staff quickly gave him aid seeing as he was not in good sorts.

Hmmm, just a rumor but watch out for Cheryl out there (and those pigs!).
