Ultrarunners of the month for May 2005
Brian Morrison, 26, of Seattle, WA won the very rugged McDonald Forest 50K Trail Run on May 6th in a time of 4:39:23. Morrison, a relative newcomer to the sport of ultradistance running, beat a top field, which included 6-time winner of the Western States 100, Scott Jurek. He also bested top American trailrunners, Hal Koerner and William Emmerson.
Ann Heaslett, 41, of Madison, WI won the women's division at the Ice Age 50 Mile Trail event in the heart of Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine State Forest. Heaslett's time was 7:49:52, an 8 minute margin over Carolyn Smith of Milwaukee, one of the top 24 Hour runners in the country.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers!
