RACE DIRECTORS’ SHORT AND SWEET EARLY REPORT
ON THE 2011 KETTLE MORAINE 100 ENDURANCE RUNS

From your race directors Jason and Timo, hearty congratulations to our 2011 champions, to all who completed their events under challenging circumstances, and to all who stepped up to the start line last Saturday at 6 a.m. and gave it their all.

Former champ Zach Gingerich, 30, of Aurora, IL, returned and won the men’s 100-mile race. Zach’s time was 19 hours, 30 minutes, 54 seconds. Before you draw any conclusions about how fast or how slow that time is, think about this: when Zach won and set our course record in 2009, he ran the 100 miles in the very fast time of 15:17:32. Over four hours “slower”, his time this year is a direct reflection of the one condition that every runner will tell you made the 2011 Kettle Moraine 100 Endurance Runs so hard: the heat. Apparently, the long-delayed start of our Wisconsin summer arrived and tried to catch up in a hurry. We had “hot and humid” all day and all night and (again) all day.

But let’s give Mother Nature credit when credit is due this year: no rain, no bugs, no mud, and no tornadoes.

We want to give a shout-out to our three other champions too. Jen Eichelberger, 39, of Carbondale, IL, won the women’s 100-miles race in 23:30:53 (13th place overall). Josh Wopata, 29, of Chicago, won the 100-kilometers race by over two hours, in 9:23:39 - a truly remarkable achievement considering the weather; even under the best of conditions, no runner has ever broken 9 hours on our 100K course. And Lucia Alzaga, 34, of Urbana, IL, won the women’s 100-kilometers race in 13:35:28 (11th place overall).

Post-race, virtually every competitor who spoke with us mentioned one or more of the following:

  • The course was the best-marked we have ever run on. (Thank you, Tom Bunk and Craig Swartout!)

  • Thanks for providing copious amounts of ice to all of your far-flung aid stations throughout the entire 30 hours that the course was open.

  • You have the friendliest, most caring, enthusiastic, knowledgeable aid station volunteers anywhere.

  • Jason’s 55-page online race manual is awesome.

  • We love your little copper kettle finisher awards.

  • “Wisconsin is so pretty!”

More shout-outs and other details to follow as soon as we can get to them. In the meantime, our final results are available online through RunRace.net either directly or through the Kettle Moraine 100 website.

Jason and Timo.

If you like tight, concise, just the facts, to-the-point sort of race
reports, this isn't one of those.
If you like the other kind, perhaps you'll get something out of this.
I didn't expect to learn so much from a race that didn't matter to me.
