2009 Race Report
September 12, 2009
Under beautiful Fall conditions at Lake Tahoe, a record number of runners lined up to do the Lake of the Sky Trail Runs. This year is the first year of the permanent change from the previous October race date into early September. The addition of a marathon(and relay) and 8 miler allowed more runners to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe.
36.4 mi Winner Cameron Berg After the Race
In the 36.4 mile race, Cameron Berg ran a strong race setting a course record in the time of 5:14:12 and beating runner-up Charlie Brenneman by almost 39 minutes!
Local Rory Bosio continued her great running season winning the women's race with a course record time of 6:05:43 beating women's Series leader Lainie Callahan-Mattoon by almost 12 minutes.

Less than two weeks before the Tahoe Super Triple, Peter Lubbers won the marathon race with a time of 4:26:30. Kimberly Wright won the women's race with a great time of 5:49:05.

In the newly created (on race day) 18 mile run, LeRoy Kessler and Dan Baglione finished together with a time of 6:47:32.

In the relays, the 36.4 mile relay was won by Rebecca Rivers and John Hargett. They are also a great couple of volunteers captaining aid stations at many Series races!
The marathon relay was won by the Curley brothers (Conner and Tyler) with a great time of 3:57:59!
The 8 mile run was won by Thomas Upp with a course record time of 1:37:57. Susan Downing set the women's course record time of 1:53:23.

All runners were treated to a fantastic feast made by Linda of pasta, chili (meat and veggie), salad, and desserts.
