2009 Buckeye Trail 50K results

Mild temperatures and a loaded field produced outstanding finisher times at the 15th annual Summer BT50K held on July 18, 2009.

First-timer Mike Seymour of Akron raced up front with Mark Godale and Kam Lee, pulling away and never relinquishing the lead after the mile 20 Boston Store aid station.

Beth Woodward ran amongst the top 15 overall and led wire-to-wire in winning the women's race for the second consecutive year.

154 runners finished the 50K which was two shy of the event record set in 2008.
