The following is the Run Report for the 2010 Green Lakes Endurance Runs, 50-km & 100-km trail races

Seven course records were set and many runners had personal records at this year’s GLER. The morning temperatures were cool, but that quickly changed. By 10:00 a.m. it was 73° and by noon it was 81°. And the temperature continued to rise in the afternoon. While the faster 50-km runners may have had a cooler run than in previous years, the three 100-km course records were earned despite harsh conditions. The runners must have been training hard and came better prepared than ever before. It was inspiring to watch the effort they put into their races.
Here is the list of 2010 Records:
100 km 50+ Grandmaster Men
Randy Miller 9:52:15 (broke his own old record 10:06:14 2009) Randy scored 3rd Open Division
100 km Open & 40+ Master Women
Elizabeth Mainiero 10:38:18 (old Open record 11:17:17 2008 Elizabeth Carrion, old Master record 11:48:12 2009 RuthAnn Helfrick)

50 km 40-49 Master Men
Jeff Nelson 3:45:59 (old record 3:58:32 2009 Paul Young) Jeff scored 3rd Open division
50 km 50+ Grandmaster Men
Ed Housel 4:00:43 (broke his own old record 4:04:44 2009)
50 km 40-49 Master Women
Shannon McHale 4:20:57 (old record Katherine Stettler 4:34:00 2007)
50 km 50+ Grandmaster Women
Nancy Kleinrock 4:32:57 (old record Tanya Cady 5:35:34 2008)

A total of 34 out of the 146 participants in this year’s races were awarded an age division award. There were also 4 “Local Champion Awards” and 3 “Inspiration Awards” awarded.

Runners that finished in the top three overall were removed from their age division and were recognized for their Open Division accomplishment. These runners included Elizabeth Mainiero age 49 and Shannon Cutting age 46 that finished 1st and 3rd in the 100-km. Randy Miller age 51 finished 3rd in the 100-km. Shannon McHale age 40 nearly came away with the 50-km Open victory in a close finish with 27 seconds separating the top three women. Jeff Nelson age 45 finished 3rd in the 50-km.

The races, the 50-km and the 100-km, and all age divisions were very competitive this year. The 100-km race had five men under 10 hours and a new women’s course record established by Elizabeth Mainiero, finishing in 10:38:19, breaking the women’s record by 39 minutes. Joshua Finger’s 100-km victory in 9:02:12 was with a margin of 48 minutes and would have been the course record if Brazilian international star Valmir Nunes hadn’t paid a visit in 2008 when he ran an 8:22:31. Elizabeth and Joshua finished 7th and 1st overall in the 41 runner field, up from 25 runners in 2009. These performances and all the 100-km performances were wonderful to witness. The RRCA designated the 100-km race the New York State Ultra Championship. The 100-km participants did the RRCA proud.

The top three in the 100-km Open Division and the top finisher in the 100-km age divisions received RRCA Championship plaques. The top three in the 50-km Open Division and the top finisher in the 50-km age divisions received custom GLER Medallions.

Amy Lane and Brian Rusiecki were the 50-km 2nd place finishers in 2009. They both ran faster races in 2010, becoming the 50-km Champions! These fine runners from Westfield, MA finished 9th and 1st overall in the 105 runner 50-km field.
The 2010 women’s 50-km competition at GLER was exciting, with Amy Lane, Jimena Barrera and Shannon McHale all finishing within 27 seconds of each other; Lane’s winning time was 4:20:30. Ed Housel, 51, and Nancy Kleinrock, 50, broke their age groups records, with Kleinrock taking over an hour off the previous record with her 4:32:57!

The 12.5-km loop course has a varied trail surface. Two ascents and one long descent traverse the upland forest along steep, shaded trails with roots, ruts, and stones. The trails in the upper meadows, referred to as “The Serengeti,” are mostly dirt and grass, with rolling terrain and no shade. The Serengeti is full of wildlife and grasses and its trails are lush with wild flowers. Three miles in the Serengeti each lap can make for a challenging summer ultra if Mother Nature offers a warm sunny day. The lake trails are shaded, have a few roots and are generally flat.

As usual, the summer afternoon took its toll on the 100-km field. The past finish rates of 41% in 2007, 39% in 2008, 68% in 2009, and now with the 56% finish rate in 2010, the GLER 100-km is establishing itself as one of the most difficult 100-km races in North America and shouldn’t be entered unless you are exceptionally fit. Congratulations to all those that finished this year’s RRCA New York State Ultra Championship! And congrats and thanks to all the GLER participants. Your effort and sportsmanship was impressive.
