    New Orleans – On Wednesday, the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released its week six national team rankings for the 2011 NCAA Division II cross country season. Western State now holds the nation’s top spot in both men’s and women’s rankings, taking over the men’s top spot for the first time this year after defeating then-No. 1 Adams State at the RMAC Championships last week. Western State, Adams State, and Grand Valley State are in the top three of both men’s and women’s rankings.

    Now in its sixth year, the Golden Gallop 10K will be held on Sunday, November 6th and will offer prize money for the first time ever. Money will go three-deep and be split $200, $150, and $100 for the top three men and women in the 10K field. The first male and female master’s runner will each earn a $75 Boulder Running Company gift certificate. Age group winners will earn a Golden Gallop pint glass. Everyone will be eligible for a ton of raffle prizes to be awarded post-race and all entrants will receive a technical, long-sleeve shirt.

    Last year’s race was won by William Gillaspie (41:48) and Mary Schmidlin (53:05). The course records date to 2009 (37:18 and 41:46). Despite the challenging course, the addition of prize money is expected to result in new course records on both the men and women’s side. The 10K course combines two separate loops through Golden and starts and finishes near the Splash Aquatic Park. ...

    Saturday at Denver's Willis Case golf course, the Metro State women recorded their highest-ever finish in the RMAC conference.

Highlights of their race, along with the men's fifth-place finish, are captured in the two videos below. Metro, along with some 20 other Division 2 schools, will compete next at the regional meet on Saturday, November 5th at Denver's Wash Park where everyone is encouraged to line the course and cheer their favorite school on. ...

    Top-ranked Adams State was upset by bitter rival Western State today at Denver's Willis Case golf course, a narrow 28-31 scoring margin separating the two. Western's Tyler Pennel ran away from his competitors on the course's final loop to finish first in 24:59. Adams State took the next two spots with Nathaniel Sellers (25:10) and Matt Bond (25:19) finishing second and third. From there, the two school's runners were mixed the rest of the way. Even if Adams' Matt Daniels was able to overcome the block that Western's David Goodman put on him at the line, Adams would not have been able to overcome the deficit. ...

    On the final morning of the TransRockies Run, we awoke in the beautiful mountain community of Vail. This day's course was a big one, with a distance of 24-25 miles and three tough ascents.

    Somehow my partner and I had recovered from our day 5 setback, and we really competed on this day. This was the most varied course of the whole event. We ran from Vail to Beaver Creek, crossing through the town and up some dirty trails. A light rain had kept the dust down as we climbed up to near the radio towers over Vail.

    All right, so in the first post it was clear that elites supported the USATF Colorado championship races. For guys that have sponsor obligations to fulfill and are chasing sponsors, saying that you won the USATF Colorado State Championship carries more weight than saying you won the Evergreen 10K or the Boulder Marathon. To really make it worthwhile for both USATF and the races though, they need more than just elites. In a Facebook comment, Denver's Dan Edstrom, a 2:40 marathoner, indicated that he was not a USATF member, and didn't know why he should be. Dan competed in one of the USATF Colorado Grand Prix races this year, the Stadium Stampede 5K, where he placed 13th. That's a solid place in a competitive race, but he was almost two minutes out of the money. What if, as Mike Sharkey indicated in the comments to the first post, money instead went 10-deep? Then Dan would have a legitimate shot at collecting some money, and would have an incentive to purchase a USATF Colorado membership for $30. He won his age group, so what if, as Tyler McCandless suggested, Dan got a USATF Age Group State Champion trophy? I believe USATF did give out age group medals this year, but most will agree that medals aren't much of an incentive. ...

    While certainly challenging, it's pretty common for road runners to crossover to triathlons. For Colorado's ultra and trail runners though, adventure racing is probably more interesting. Few in Colorado can speak to adventure racing as well as Evergreen's Travis Macy. A former walk-on to the University of Colorado cross country team, Travis has traveled and raced around the world, competing at adventure racing's highest level. Once called an "adventure racing prodigy," he shares some advice on how to approach the sport, recounts some incredible challenges, and reveals himself to be a great ambassador for the sport, in addition to the tremendous athlete that we already knew he was. ...

    USATF Colorado’s first year of meaningful work on the state’s road race scene included involvement with five races – the Stadium Stampede 5K, the Evergreen Town Race 10K, the Heart & Sole Half Marathon, the Boulder Marathon, and the Lead King Loop 25K. Each of those races put up significant prize money. Some had money in the past, but for others the money was new this year. For each of those races, it was their first year to serve as a state championship. Taking a look at the 2011 results as compared to those from a year earlier, how did the performances compare? Were finish times faster or slower? If faster, was it because of the addition of prize money or because the race was now a state championship? What about finisher numbers, higher or lower, and attributable to what? I was curious so took a look, and what I found is below.

    No matter how I spin it, this weekend lacked the luster of last weekend's giant series of marathons all around the country. Still, there are highlights to share - Matt Kempton's big marathon PR and the CU men's impressive run at Pre-Nats top that list. Read on for the full weekend recap.

    On the fourth morning of TransRockies, I was feeling a different kind of soreness. Like I said earlier, the muscle soreness had gone and did not return. But my knees were feeling real beat up from these awesome descents.

    Day 4 was a run from Camp Hale to the small mountain town of Red Cliff. This was another quick (14 miles) up-and-down, but without the huge climb that day 2 (Hope Pass) provided. Nonetheless, it was a still a big climb for a Midwestern runner like myself.

    These days, I no longer consider myself a runner. I was a track and cross country athlete in high school and college, and continued to run a couple of years after graduation. That was followed by a steady decline in fitness and basically abandoning running as a serious endeavor. It was slowly replaced by cycling, and in the past year or so that has become a fairly serious activity for me, to the tune of 7 to 10 hours of riding/week and regular racing. ...

    I was somehow lucky enough to get in on the initial offering for Bedrock Sandals. Facebook page.

    I believe it was a link from TrailRunner magazine that I clicked in the spring. This link led me to a "Kickstarter" page wherein various small entrepreneurs try to build up some investment capital to get their new biz off the ground. From what I saw on the kickstarter page, I not only wanted to buy a pair of sandals, I wanted to ask them about their IPO.

    These guys offered to custom-cut a pair to anyone's specific shoe size, or even an outline of their foot. Then there were various colors of straps that could be ordered to finish off the product. I went with the silver.

    When word came mid-week that Josh Cox, the American 50K record-holder, was coming to race the Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon, Arvada's Chris Siemers got fired up. Racing in a red Mile High Track Club singlet, Siemers sped through half in 1:06:58, caused Cox to jog it in, won the race by over 10 minutes, and most importantly, ran 2:18:49 to qualify for the Olympic trials. To say the least, it was a very impressive day for Siemers. Other top results are listed below. ...

    The much-hyped main event at the Portland Marathon turned into the Ryan Herzog show. Despite reports that he was feeling sick pre-race, Herzog ran 2:33:46 to finish just off his PR. Herzog was the 4th overall finisher on the hilly course. The second member of the Mile High Track Club competing, Dan Verdi ran 2:39:24. Verdi said that he gave it everything he had on the day. Congrats to both runners, and looking at the predictions, it looks like the free pair of Brooks running shoes courtesy of Boulder Running Company - Denver Tech Center are going to Johannes Rudolph. Rudolph correctly guessed that Herzog would win the battle and his prediction of 2:33:20 was the closest to Herzog's actual finish time. ...
