Ultrarunners of the month for May 2004, sponsored by Ultrafit
Scott Creel, 41, Bozeman, MT won the Ice Age 50K Trail event in a fast time of 3:14:04. Run over the difficult glacial terrain of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, Creel bested a very good field to win the event which is part of the 2004 Montrail Cup series. In 2003, Creel was the USATF National 50K Trail Championship
Nikki Kimball, 32, Elizabethtown, NY equaled Creels effort, in winning the women's side of the Ice Age 50K Trail run with a time of 3:53:16. As in the men's race, this leg of the Montrail Cup series offered stiff competition, but Kimball, the 2003 50 Mile Trail National Champion prevailed and is now considered by many as the best all-around female ultrarunner in the United States.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers!
