Local ultrarunners fare well in Tahoe Rim Trail 50K, 50M

Imagine smoking the competition in a 50-kilometer race, then receiving grief about not and#8220;stepping upand#8221; to a longer distance.

It’s what happened to Peter Fain and#8212; all in good fun and#8212; after the Truckee athlete won his third consecutive 50K in the annual Tahoe Rim Trail 50K/50M/100M Endurance Runs this past Saturday.

and#8220;(Race Director) David Cotter asked me afterward when I was going to step up and do the 50-miler,and#8221; said Fain, adding that he caught similar flak from his wife. and#8220;I keep chickening out because of the heat. I don’t like running in the heat.and#8221;



He didn’t have to Saturday, as the 37-year-old crossed the Spooner Lake finish line before noon with a time of 4 hours, 39 minutes, 4 seconds and#8212; well in front of runner-up Tim Twietmeyer, 50, of Auburn, who posted a 5:22:14. Fain won in 2008 with a time of 4:48:30, and set a new course record in 2007 with a blazing 4:33:29.

Julie Young, a 43-year-old from Auburn, won the women’s 50K and took third overall in 5:27:28.



Another Truckee athlete, Gretchen Brugman, opted for the 50-mile distance in what was her fourth year competing. She was on her game from the early-morning start, finishing second among women and sixth overall with a time of 9:57:04.

and#8220;I felt like I paced myself pretty well,and#8221; said Brugman, who shaved more than an hour off her previous-best time of around 11 hours, 5 minutes. and#8220;I think having a lot of experience on the course finally paid off.and#8221;

Only 96 of the 143 registered 50-mile racers finished, according to the results, and only Wendi Parker-Dial, 39, of Franklin, Tenn., beat Brugman, topping the women’s field in 9:46:27. Mark Gilligan, 38, of Oakland won the 50-miler in 8:21:32, while Shan Riggs, 30, of San Francisco finished a distant second in 9:33:51.

Tahoe City ultrarunner Chris Luberecki, 42, also posted a solid result in his second Tahoe Rim Trail 50-Miler, as he finished ninth in 10:27:37. He said he was surprised to learn just how high he finished, because leg cramps and tendanitis in his knee slowed his pace the second half of the race.

and#8220;My goal was top 10, but I didn’t think that was realistic after I slowed down,and#8221; said Luberecki, explaining that he was relieved to finish the race without stomach issues and#8212; something that has plagued him in his last few endurance runs.

and#8220;Part of doing this race was to push it and see how my stomach felt. So that alone was a huge success for me,and#8221; Luberecki said.

Erik Skaden of Folsom defended his title in the Tahoe Rim Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run, crossing the finish line in the wee hours of Sunday morning with a time of 20 hours, 27 minutes, 32 seconds.

The win also earned Skaden, 37, the USA Track and Field 100-Mile Trail National Championship, as well as the Road Runners Club of America 100-Mile National Ultra Championship. Last year he shared those titles and#8212; as well as the $1,000 prize purse and#8212; with Mike Wolfe of Missoula, Mont., after the two agreed to finish at the same time in just over 18 hours, 59 minutes.

In the women’s 100-mile field, Bree Lambert of San Jose won her first-ever title in the Tahoe Rim Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run. She led all female runners, including those in the 50K and 50-mile races, from the starting gun and finished in 23 hours, 42 minutes, 32 seconds.

With temperatures flirting with triple-digits during the heat of the day, about half of the 100-mile field and#8212; 64 of 112 registered runners and#8212; did not finish, according to the results.
