Alex Barth - 4:59:34

Wakely's course record is safe... at least for this year.  Try as he might, the trail conditions this year put Ian Schouten's 4:54:49 mark just out of reach of returning Pennsylvanian Barth.  After being sidelined earlier in the year due to foot surgery, Alex made a great come back scoring a sub-5 hour result - only the second runner to have done so.  Congratulations!

Alex and 2nd place finisher Ryan Smith get off to a fast start.
