Mohican update

I didn't arrive down at Mo' until late Saturday, but here is my brief report:

It was a relatively cooler year, with the normal Ohio humidity and a late afternoon thunderstorm which was heavy at times. I witnessed the top 10 runners come through Grist Mill aid station (mile 75), including locals Wyatt, Connie, Vince, and Dawn.

The men's winner was Jay Smithberger in 17:55 and Connie Gardner in 19:22. Gardner earned her third Mohican win while bettering her previous women's 40-49 course record from 2007.

In the 100 mile, 127 runners started and about 70 (not sure) finished. There was a concurrent 50 mile race that I have no stats on.

Five runners went sub-20 hours. Nearly twenty runners went sub-24 hours.

Some local results that I remember off-the-top of my head (sorry if I excluded your name.)

Wyatt Hornsby 19:22 (4th overall)
Connie Gardner 19:22 (5th, 1st woman)
Vince Rucci 20:46 (6th)
Dawn Malone 22:20 (2nd woman)

Steve Godale 25:50-ish
Dave Peterman 26:20-ish

Fred Davis - finished 10th Mohican.

Congrats to all - I look forward to the race reports.
