7/19/2003: Ultrarunners of the month for June 2003, brought to you by Ultrafit
Scott Jurek, 28, Seattle, WA, has simply dominated the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run the last five years. In successive years, Jurek has continually lowered his time to the point that on June 28th, he ran the third fastest time ever on the course (16:01), behind only Mike Morton's course record 15:40 and Tom Johnson's, 15:54. Jurek's fifth consecutive win was against one of the steepest, most talented fields of year.
Ann Trason, 42, Kennsington, CA, is even more dominate then Jurek. With 14 sub 20 hour finishes (all wins), Trason's name will forever be associated with the event that is widely regarded as the most prestigious trail 100 miler in the world. Her time of 18:36 was her 7th fastest on the course and close to an hour ahead of the second place women.
Another very notable performance at Western States was achieved by Roger Dellor, age 60, who set the 60-64 age group record, with a time of 20:28.
Congratulations to these three outstanding performances!
