Hellgate 100K: Knipling Captures The Beast

Keith Knipling captured his second Beast Series championship by finishing David Horton's Hellgate 100k++ in 12:48, just one minute ahead of women's champ Kristin Eddy (VHTRC members may remember Kristin as the 2003 VHTRC Women's Half Champion). Many other club members finished the race, held this year in perfect trail conditions but in record heat, with high temps in upper 60s. Kerry Owens finished her 8th Hellgate and Aaron Schwartzbard finished his 10th (see more of Kerry and Aaron on George Wortley's entertaining video of Hellgate 2012 on Youtube). Results


. . . and congrats to Sophie for her 3rd place womens finish and to Aaron and others for receiving their 10yr coveted commemorative plaques (a must see). A few crewing photos here.
