Steamboat Springs At least for the time being, Tabor Scholl will hold house bragging rights over her brother Tyler.
Tabor, 12, out-sprinted Tyler, 8, during the 5-kilometer portion of Sunday's 10K at 10,000 Feet. The event, part of the Steamboat Springs Running Series, featured 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer races.
In the 5K event, the Scholl siblings ran with each other until the last 50 yards. That's when Tabor nudged ahead of her brother for first place with a time of 18 minutes, 39 seconds.
"It feels very excellent," Tabor said. "Tyler usually gets the bragging rights."
Tyler, however, wasn't too upset.
He got a side cramp during the final stretch and said sprinting isn't really his specialty.
"She's a way faster sprinter than me," said Tyler, who finished first in the 5K on the men's side with a time of 18:46. "I'm more of a long-distance runner. She can beat me at anything below a mile. I'm going to work really hard. I'm going to try to win the next race."
Ken Rogers (20:16) finished second in the men's 5K race, and Garrett Edwards (21:15) was third. On the women's side, Lisa Adams (23:10) finished second, and Hannah Williams (24:14) was third.
On a picture-perfect day for running, more than 100 racers turned out for the 25th anniversary of the race. Both races followed the same route from the Dumont Lake campground up double- and singletrack trails. The 5K course headed toward the iconic Rabbit Ears rock formation. Once runners hit the midway point, they turned around.
In the 10K race, a pair of Front Range runners took the top spots.
On the women's side, Littleton resident Lindsay Krause won with a time of 51:02. Fellow Littleton resident Andrew Biglow won the men's division in a time of 46:00.
Krause and Biglow came up to Steamboat together for the weekend. Krause - whose husband is competing in the Steamboat Springs Stage Race - said she treated the event as a training tool for the Aspen Golden Leaf Half Marathon.
"It was just for a good workout," she said. "I do some trail running, and I'm on the Salomon Trail Running Team. I thought this would be a good training run."
Jenna Gruben was second in the women's 10K, finishing in 52:14, while Anne Mudgett was third in 57:19.
On the men's side, Ryan O'Laughlin was second in 46:06, and Erik Ramstad was third in 48:12.
The Running Series continues Saturday with the Emerald Mountain Trail Run.
