Karl Meltzer wins inaugural 100-mile Run Rabbit Run; bears get into drop bags
Karl Meltzer placed his odds at seven, but on Saturday morning he was the first to the finish line and $10,000 at the inaugural 100-Mile Run Rabbit Run race in Steamboat Springs.
He said it best: "We don’t need to run fast, we only need to run all night."
Meltzer finished in 19 hours and 16 minutes.
Bears got into some of the racers' drop bags, hauling them into the woods to steal bites, and some racers missed turns and complained of inadequate trail markers.
Dylan Bowman placed second in 19:56, and Timothy Olson was third in 20:28.
Because Meltzer qualified for the masters category his total take from the race is $11,000.
Lizzy Hawker won the women's race in 22:07.
