FROM RACE DIRECTOR JAY CURWEN
For the first time in 19 years, we were denied the summit due to heavy snow & ice this week and the Parkway’s tightening restrictions on access for volunteers. Hopefully, we can resolve the issues or find an alternate date that reduces the risks. With everyone running the Marathon, the racing was intense. Morgan Elliott destroyed the previous Marathon record by 13 minutes in 2:49:02, while Anne Lundblad handled a super competitive women’s field for the win in 3:37:43. Asheville’s Matt Roane and Barbera Green took home the Master’s titles.
