MPF News

What a weekend of inspiration with the Western States 100 taking place on one side of the country and the Manitou’s Revenge 54 Mile Endurance Run here on the #beastcoast. Two of our favorite races.  

We had several athletes from the MPF RNR team, clients and MPF Adventure Club toeing the line.

  • MPF client, Emmanual Odebunmi was in California for the Western States 100 where he finished the second race of his Grand Slam attempt!

  • Meghan Young, PR’ed by over an hour placing 3rd female at Manitou’s Revenge with the time of 14:29!

The weather called for cooler temps than usual in the Catskills with passing showers throughout the day, which made for ideal conditions although a bit slick at times. Ben and Andy battled it out on the course with Andy Vermilyea setting a new course record in 10:47:21! For full race results, click here.

  • Ben set a new PR on course in the time of 10:54:42, just one week after racing at Mt. Chocurua 25k!

  • Kehr Davis won for the 3rd year in a time of 13:49:15!

  • Jay Lemos set a new PR crossing the line in 12:02:32!

  • Jayson Kolb had a strong performance finishing in 12:20:03.

  • Mike Siudy placed top 10 just 3 weeks after the Catskill Ditremissea and manged to fulfill all of his co race director duties as well!

  • Mendy Gallo finished her first Manitou in the time of 16:55.

  • Elizabeth Azze finished her 4th Manitou.

  • Laura Rekkerth had a great race to place 4th at Many On The Genny.
