Runners take on Howelsen’s trails

Sports of all sorts raged Saturday morning on and around Howelsen Hill in downtown Steamboat Springs.

Mountain bikers worked their way up and down singletrack trails on Emerald Mountain. Battles raged on the baseball diamonds below as a Triple Crown Tournament carried on. Through it all, more than 125 runners tackled the mountain in the first train run of the summer of the Steamboat Springs Running Series.

Darren Thomas ran his way to a win in the longest race of the day, an 8-mile challenge up and down the trails on Howelsen Hill and Emerald Mountain. He finished the course in 52 minutes, 46 seconds. Paul Moth was second in 53:40, and Deven Olson claimed third in 54:07.

Heather Gollnick cruised to a win on the women’s side, finishing in 1:09:52. Missy Amato was second at 1:10:42 and Blair Shattuck third in 1:11:17.

Simon Zink took the day’s shorter race, a 4-mile jaunt above Steamboat Springs. He finished in 26:45. Brian Getz was second in 29:23. Thomas Reuter was third for the men in 33:11.

Maggi Congdon ended up third in the women’s race and third among all racers. She finished in 31:35. Katie O’Connell was second in 32:14 and Cara Weiner third at 32:20.
