Nate Anderson of Steamboat Springs and Mary Schuette of Fort Collins won the seven-mile run at Sunday's Steamboat Pilot & Today Run for Literacy.
Anderson finished in 49 minutes, 28 seconds to capture the men's division. Schuette won the women's division in 1:00:48.
The seven-mile run is a grueling race that requires runners to climb Emerald Mountain to the limestone quarry and return. It is the second year the Run for Literacy has followed the course. Previously, the Run for Literacy began and ended at Sundance Plaza.
Andy Picking of Steamboat was just 10 seconds behind Anderson and finished second. Campbell Ilfrey of Boulder was third in 50:25.
Steph Scholl of Kremmling was second in the women's division with a time of 1:02:18. Jane Harbert of Morrison was third in 1:03:28.
Lisa Adams and Larry Handing won the 5K run. Handing took the men's division with a time of 22:42. Fourteen-year-old Kyle Steitz was on Handing's heels, finishing second in 22:57.
Adams won the women's division with a time of 23:09, just ahead of Veronica de Camp, who came in second with a time of 23:19.
Erica Gale won the 5K walk in 43:04. She was followed by Mary Liz Gale, 43:05, and Annice Gouveia, 43:50.
Proceeds from the Run for Literacy benefit the Pilot & Today's Newspapers in Education program, which provides free newspapers to teachers and schoolchildren for use in the classroom.
