There was hard work and there were challenging trails, but the weather was fine at Sunday’s Blood, Sweat and Beers Trail Run.

There is a long course (10.5 miles) or a short course (5.9 miles) and the race directors promise “a challenging mix of single track mountainous trail, a totally cool canal system, unimproved dirt roads with just a hint of paved roads to keep things interesting.”

Sounds like a good time!

In the long course, Chris Vargo led the way to win in 1:07:24. He was followed in by Matthew Twietmeyer , who ran 1:12:30. The 3rd place male was Eric Peterson, in 1:15:22. All were from Sacramento.

The top female on the long course was Erin Wachter, of Sacramento, who ran 1:19:59. Next in was Lindsey Plitt, of Roseville, in 1:27:59, followed in 3rd by Roxana Pana, of Davis, in 1:29:13.

Over on the short course, the top women were Diana Boyer, of Auburn, in 50:07; Julie Bedell, of Folsom, in 51:25; and Cherie Smith, of Sacramento, in 51:33.

The top three men on the short course were Camron Shahmirzadi, of Folsom, in 37:45; Chris Badolato, of Reno, in 38:41; and Jonathan Rihel, of Sacramento, in 44:26.

Complete results are here.

(Tip of the hat to Matt Perry for the photos from the race. Matt is happy to report that his training paid off with an 11-minute improvement over last year’s time.)

The weather and venue were in perfect harmony for post-race picnicking.
