In search of a real uphill battle

James Ball

John Howell of Reno and Sarah Shuler of Davis claimed the top spots in Saturday’s 18th annual Mountain Run at Squaw Valley, an event which drew more than 500 die-hard participants from across the west.

Finishing in 29:34, Howell completed the 3.6 mile scenic dirt course which climbed from an elevation of 6,200 to 8,200 feet, just ahead of Bobee Palmer (30:13) and Ron Tibaduiza (31:28).

In the women’s category, Shuler came in at 37:49, ahead of Southern Californian Kelly Flathers (38:27) and Mill Valley’s Pat Gibbs (40:46).

The uphill course followed the 1960 Olympic Downhill ski route up to High Camp. Organizers described the route as “short, but relentless while the altitude adds an extra dimension.”
