Ellen Aster wins age group in Imogene Pass Run

Congratulations to Ellen for winning her age group at the very difficult Imogene Pass Run

Local Athlete completes IM Louisville

Michael Ruth completed his first IM in 13:34. A few days later he was even showing off the bike at the Tech Club Day, surely turning some heads.

Locals in High Standing 2007 NMORS

Take a stroll through the various NMORS standings and you'll see some familiar names, especially near the top of the Single-speed Men's, Sport M19-29, and Beginner Men's 30-39. At a quick glance, Issac and Karl are 2nd & 3rd in their category, David Vaughn and Walter Brisken are 2nd in theirs, and Ellen Aster and Peter van Moorsel have points from racing as well!

Sahuarita Triathlon 

Pat Roache recently braved the heat over the Memorial Day weekend in Tucson while participating in the Sahuarita Triathlon. Check out the results, which show that he finished second in his age group.

Jay Benson Triathlon 

At least 4 SSR members raced the Jay Benson on May 13th with Catharine Roache and Royce Laine getting second and first in their age groups, respectively, while Melissa Begay and Pete van Moorsel fought through the large crowds to grab top 10 places in theirs. Check out CCR Timing for the official results.

Run For The Zoo 

Quite a few locals & members ran in the May 6th Run For The Zoo with great results! Some of the participants were Katie Devine, Robert Abernathy, Pip Mena, Jan Sramek, Lynette Napier, E.P. Higgs, and Dacodah Herkenhoff.

Highlights included Pip winning 2nd in her 10k AG and Lynetter winning 3rd in hers. Congratulations!

Las Palomas (Puerto Peñasco)

Not one to simply enjoy Cinco de Mayo with some beer and Mexican food, Mike Montoya placed third overall in the olympic tri at Rocky Point (on May 5th). He did so well, in fact, that he won his age group by nearly 5 minutes! Official results. And yes, this is our Mike Montoya, not the imposter from Albuquerque.

MVTC Triathlon Results

We finally have the results! Way to go to Cathy for grabbing 2nd in her age group.

The Fall Running Series Has Started!

It consists of 4 5k's (see schedule at right), and costs $5 to register PLUS you have to be an active SSR member.

First race runners
Almost 30 runners!!

Yes, the first 5k was a long one. 3.3 miles, in fact. So multiply your time by 94% or so...

Regardless, congratulations to Aaron for winning the race!
