Ultra-bada** Hannah Taylor wins High Lonesome 100 in Salida by 2 hours
Winning an ultra-marathon is an enormous feat. But to beat the next-fastest runner by two hours? That comes with bragging rights for life.
On July 28, Hannah Taylor of Dillon did just that when she crossed the finish line at the High Lonesome 100 in 29 hours and 59 minutes — more than two hours ahead of the next female finisher, Ivy Lefebvre of Silverthorne in nearly 32 hours flat.
Oh, and both of these Summit locals ran 100 miles in nearly continuous rain.
“Undoubtedly a great race for her and great to (be) taking a second win here after her (adventure racing) win at the Teton Ogre with us about a month ago,” said Olof Hedberg, head coach for Summit Nordic Ski Club, where Taylor is a coach in winter. “We are obviously lucky here at SNSC to have coaches that are such good athletic role models for our athletes and understand what it takes to succeed at a high level in sports.
Taylor finished about six-and-a-half hours behind the overall winner, 23-year-old Anthony Lee, who finished in 23 hours and 29 minutes. The next-fastest man, Mike Wolfe, finished in 23 hours and 57 minutes.
