I_st year, around 120 runners participated. This year, over 200 ran in the race. "It's become a must for a lot of runners," said SBTS trails director Tara Stone. "It's gained a lot more recognition in the last year." Stone went on to mention that the run was featured in national magazines including Trail Runner and Action Sports. For the 50-kilometer race, runners started in Graeagle and made their way through Mohawk Valley before ascending Mills Peak. Once at the top, runners were given a false sense of accomplishment with a stretch of flat terrain. Then the real climb set in. Runners had to practically climb the next leg of the course: uP to the peak of Mount Elwell with an elevation of 7,732 feet. Participants then made their way dow the steep 4,000-foot descent back to Graeagle. Fifty kilometers never felt so long to a lot of the runners. Luckily, a shorter 29-kilometer course and even shorter 10-kilometer course were available for those not as daring. Ryan Matz was the first 50-kilometer runner to cross the finish line. Matz finished the course in just 5 hours, 6 minutes, 38 seconds, setting a new record for the annual race. "It was a great course," Commented Matz after finishing. "It was hard. Very beautiful, but difficult." Peter Fain came in after Matz with a time of 5t19:36. Scott Dakof took third place, coming in exactly one minute later. Emily Peterson placed first in the women's category with a time of 6:03:03. In the 29K run, Eric Johnson placed first with a time of 3:03:50. Jim Harvey placed second overall, finishing in 3:05:43.
