Ultrarunners of the month for November 2005
Howard Nippert, 40 of Fork Union, VA won the JFK 50 Mile, America's oldest and largest ultramarathon, in Boonesboro, Maryland. Nippert's time was an impressive 5:51:28 and is his second sub six hour winning effort at the JFK event, which is a combination trail/road course.
Anne Lundblad, 39 of Asheville, NC ran one of the great performances of the year, shattering the women's course record at the JFK 50 Mile. Lundblad was recently was named the 2005 Ultrarunner of the Year for Women by USATF, based largely on her stunning success at the World 100K in Japan, leading the USA Women to the team gold, with her second place finish in the individual results. Lunblad's time and new course record at JFK was a remarkable 6:29:42, breaking by over 20 minutes a record which had stood for over 20 years.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers!
