Congratulations to all the runners in the 2009 edition of Stone Steps 50k.  It was a great day on the trails, with another male course records being broken.  We also had 75 registered runners and 60 starters, both new marks as well.

Jay Smithberger broke his own course record by over 3 minutes, in 4:16:17, while setting a new age group record as he grows older.  (Sorry Jay!)  The former age group record holder was Tom Possert, founder of Stone Steps 50k.  David Krekeler set a new 50-59 age group record by over twenty minutes, 5:11:25.  Mark Calcatera set a new 60+ age group record by five minutes, 6:36:09.

First place female was Loretta Fox, finishing in 5:40:05.

We had 75 runners registered, 72 starters, and 60 finishers, all records.  The weather was perfect, starting at 41 degrees and finishing at 60 degrees.  The trail was marked well, until vandals took down the flags on the large loop.  The sunshine blinded some runners on the small loop, missing the turn back into the woods.  We keep learning where to put more ribbons, flags, paint and caution tape.
