Gorges Weekend at the Gorge 100k and 50k!

Gorges Weekend
Seattle Running Club had a nice weekend at the pair of Rainshadow Running ultramarathon races, the Gorge Waterfalls 100k on Saturday and the Gorge Waterfalls 50k on Sunday near Portland in western Oregon.

Justin Houck at the Gorge 100kJustin Houck was first up for the 100k, his first ever. A top-2 finish would earn him a trip to the famed Western States 100 miler this June.

Houck did more than enough to earn that berth, winning handily versus a loaded field in a course-record time of 9:22:56. He was in a lead pack of four at the turnaround point (50k) and from mile 40 to the finish put over 20 minutes on his next closest competitor.

Trisha and Keith at Gorge Waterfalls 50kSunday, while Justin gorged on ice cream, Trisha Steidl and Keith Laverty would be representing #SRCBrooks in the Gorge Waterfalls 50k. Trisha is a veteran of the ultra distance but this would be Keith Laverty’s first go of it. Both raced admirably and won for their respective genders, Keith winning outright in 4:27 and Trisha finishing 13th overall in 5:02.

We can only assume they too gorged on ice cream after their hard fought victories. We’re waiting to hear back on Keith’s race plans later this summer, but we’re happy to announce Trisha will be taking on the White River 50 again this July!
