The course has also seen changes and is now quite a bit more difficult than it was a couple years ago. Karl Meltzer owns the course record on the older, easier course with a time of 15:48 in 2006, when he ran uncontested (as usual) with a speedy Josh Brimhall coming in over an hour later. For comparison, last year's winning time was 18:00, in a run by Dylan Bowman who fought off late charges by Yassine Diboun and Rod Bien in a tie for 2nd in 18:12. I scampered in after suffering a poorly run race in 22:46 for 15th overall. Dylan had already showered, had breakfast, and was planning his next race by the time I crossed the finish line.
