Man V Horse Recovery Run 10/10

We are on as always for a group trail run in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Wednesday morning 5:18 AM. Meet at the very top of Squaw Peak Drive. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace.

WMRC had another great show at this year’s 2009 Man Against Horse 25 / 50 mile trail run. This week there is a Female and Male Runner of the week. Lisa Osinga ran her first 50-mile trail race and completed it in a very strong fashion. She easily wins the female ROW. Way to go Lisa!! The Male Runner of the week was very close but Jamil Coury hangs on to beat his brother Nick. Literally. Jamil won this years race with a time of 7 hours and 8 minutes. He almost had all the horses beat until one passed him within a mile of the finish. Nick finished only 2 minutes behind Jamil. After the first 10 miles they didn’t see each other all day. Great job

The results aren’t posted yet so we are still a little foggy on who competed what. What is understood there where 6 WMRC’s in the top 10 of the 50 mile. After Jamil and Nick, Chip finished 7th in 8:40 even after getting lost. Jody was first female at 9:09. Joe Galope 9th at 9:15. Paulette Zillmer 10th overall, 2nd women. Very Impressive Run. Jeff Jones, Debbie L, Lisa O and Aaron finish off the group (unless I am missing someone).

In the 25-mile we had Tiffany Finke who was the 2nd female overall with a time of 4:04. Very Nice!! Albert Shank also had a great run. Candice and Honey too!! Lastly (unless I missed someone) Mark Cosmas completed the 25 even without his good buddy Higg. Reports are that he cried a little but persevered solo to the finish. Check out JJ's MVH video below.

Next up is Mazatzals 18 mile trail run Sunday. Also don't forget the Copper Basin Fat-Ass 50K on the 17th of October and the WMRC Squaw Peak Scramble Poker Run on the 24th!

I didn't wake up until about mile-35 when Chip snuck up behind me and scared the cr*p out me.

Jamil said...

Does anyone have the email for the guy who was taking photos during the race?

Higg said...
