riologoEnjoying the cooler weather afforded by Rio Del Lago’s new November date, Christopher Wehan and Erika Lindland, 31, of Fairfax, turned in fast times to win the long-running, but newly revamped 100 mile race.

Wehan, 31, of Arcata, was the overall winner, rushing back to the finish at Beals Point in 16:56:46.

Lindland, also 31, of Fairfax, was the women’s champion and 5th overall in 19:04:27.

Kelly Lance, 45, of Pocatello, Idaho, and Ray Sanchez, 46, of Sacramento, were the second and third men with times of 18:30:24 and 18:32:18, respectively.

Angie Pozzi, 54, of Granite Bay was the second woman finisher, with a time of 23:40:18. The third woman was Paige Dunmore, 28, of Salt Lake City, who finished in 25:51:24.

Complete results are here.

This is the first year since this race was acquired by NorCal Ultras, and under the management of local ultra-impresario Julie Fingar. The event’s date change, from late September to early November, seems to have been well received and cooler temperatures probably had a lot to do with the 82-percent finish rate!

It will be interesting to see if this event continues to grow under new, more active management.
