10/14/2003: Ultrarunners of the month for September 2003, brought to you by Ultrafit Sports, The Endurance Performance Leader
Tim Clement, 42 of Solon, Ohio, surprised everyone in taking the USA National 100 mile road titles at Olander Park in Sylvania, Ohio. Run under a relentless bright, baking sun for the first seven hours of the race, which started at 10:00AM, Clement's time of 14:01:01 was very noteworthy under the conditions. Clement won the Masters Champion crown as well.
Connie Gardner, 39 of Medina, Ohio won the women's crown in 16:22:15, which is a USA Championship record. Gardner, the 2002 USA 100km champion, ran unchallenged wire-to-wire, gradually extending her winning margin by over seven miles. Gardner has risen to the top elite of American ultrarunning women and is now setting her sights on perhaps the biggest test of her career; the 100K World Cup in Taiwan, to be held November 16th.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers.
