Ultrarunners of the Month - August 2002, Presented by Ultrafit Sports
Chad Ricklefs, 35, of Boulder, CO, won the Leadville100 Mile Trail Run on August, 17th, in course record time. His time of 17:23:18 is remarkable since the entire course is run at altitudes of 9,000 to 12,000 feet. Rickleffs has clearly shown his diverse abilities, as earlier in the year, he won the Chicago Lakefront 50 Km in a time of 3:12:15.
Mary Fagan, 26 of Mill Valley, CA won the Headlands USA National 50Km Trail Championship, in 4:30:59 over a deep women's field. A newcomer on the ultrarunning circuit, Fagan first came to notice earlier this year by winning the Cool Canyon Crawl 50Km. This is her first USA National Championship title.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers
