Paul Dewitt, 35, Colorado Springs, CO beat a talented field on February 14th at the Red Hot 50K Trail event in Moab, Utah. Dewitt's time of 3:57 is very noteworthy as the field included ultrarunner talents Ian Torrence, Karl Meltzer. Erik Solof and Hal Koerner.
Anthea Schmid, 32, Colorado Springs, CO established herself as the February female ultrarunner of the month with a pair of wins. On February 7th, Schmid won the Pemberton 50K in Fountain Hills, Arizona in time of 4:02. A week later on February 14th, she won the inaugural Moab event, the Red Hot Trail 50K in a time 4:39. In April, Schmid will test herself over the challenging 100K road distance, by running in the American 100K National Championship, with hopes of qualifying for the American 100K team.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers.
