Ultrarunners of the month for November 2005
Patrick Russell, 29, of Duluth, MN was the top finisher at the Edmund Fitzgerald 100K held on October 15th. The "Ed Fitz" is run along much of the north shore of Lake Superior, finishing near Duluth, Minnesota. Russell is one of the emerging new stars at the 100K road distance, having made his first national team this year. Russell ran unchallenged to win in an impressive 7:12:25.
Katherine Koski, 32 of Two Harbors, MN ran a stunning 100K debut at the Ed Fitz and finished first among women in an outstanding time of 8:00:28. A speedy marathoner and half-marathoner, Koski brings some much needed legspeed to the American road ultrarunning scene and will hopefully join the reigning World Gold Medalist Women's 100K Team in 2006.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers!
