   March 21st, The Pac Rim 24 Hour Run at Lake Sacajawea in Longview, WA. Two CGRC Members took part. Esther Holman ran a personal record by 19 miles, by covering 50 Miles in just over 10.5 hours. Bob Lynes managed to complete an astounding 71 miles.

Stan & Esther Holman ran the 29th annual Sunflower Iron Run in Twisp, Wa. (5/2/09) Stan won the 21.7 mile trail race in 2:35:28, while Esther finished 111th in 4:24:07.

Lucas Lembrick ran the Eugene Marathon in a time of 4:12:28

Thursday the 26th at 6 PM, some friends gathered at the Dog Mt. trailhead, to embark on 24 hours of 7 mile loops, and to see how many they could do! Quite a few club members showed up to do their first summit (2948'), or to do multiple ones. At 6 PM Friday, some reflected on what had just taken place. The results were staggering, just as can be imagined. Anna Bates, and Bob Lynes both completed 8 loops (thats 56 miles, and about 23,000' of elevation gain), Stan Holman completed, Steve Peterson did 4 loops, John Robinson, Esther Holman, And Eb Engleman did 3 loops, Bruce Yeadon did 2 loops, and Ben Shumaker, Allan Dushan, Kevin Gosselin, Scott McMullen, and his friend Erin Haines all did 1 loop, and I believe it was their first time. Chad & Sophie Miller get credit for a partial.

Another Carson to Stevenson Ridge Run is in the books. Congratulations to all the participants, volunteers, and everyone that helped make this years event the best yet.
