Ultrarunners of the month for January 2004
John Geesler, 44, St. Johnsville, NY established a new American Record for 48 hours by running 248.55 miles at the Across the Years 48 Hour event in Phoenix, Arizona. Geesler, coming off a remarkable 2003 season, in which he led the American team at the World 24 Hour, then came back to take the silver medal at the San Diego One Day National 24-Hour Championship, has now established himself as the premier American at 24 hours and beyond.
Stephanie Ehret, 40, Boulder, CO established herself among the elite American 24 hour women by running a strong 130.49 miles at the Across the Years 24 Hour event in Phoenix, earning a spot on the National Team for the 2004 World 24-Hour event. Back in November, Ehret had won outright the inaugural Javalina Trail 100 in Arizona in an impressive 17:38:51.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers.
