2008 Ohlone Wilderness 50K – Results

The 2008 Ohlone 50K results are now up on the race web site ( www.abovethefog.net

) and are listed below. Congratulations on Jean Pommier and Beth Vitalis for their wins, with special recognition going to Beth for setting a new 40-49 age group record under very demanding conditions.

We finished the day with 135 official finishers out of 152 starters.

We are exceptionally grateful to everybody that stopped on the course to assist our injured runners. Clearly these people had their priorities in the right place. Such selflessness is a great part of what makes the community of ultra runners so special.

In light of the conditions, and the number of runners who spent a considerable amount of time assisting other runners, we have decided to waive the 6:00pm cut off time this year. Regardless of their finishing time, all runners that made it to Del Valle have been credited with an official finish. In addition, we are crediting an honorary official finish to Arun Sharma who spent approximately 90 minutes helping on the trail, which ultimately led to him having to abandon the course at Schlieper Rock.

We also can’t thank deeply enough, or often enough, our incredible team of volunteers. From the aid stations, to course marking, to the sweeps, to the finish line, the BBQ, and everything in between – again

– Thank You.

Last, but not least, we thank and appreciate the sponsors that help make our race a success: ZombieRunner, Gu, Succeed, The North Face, and Johnson Lumber.
