Santa Barbara Tough Enough

Course records

The men’s individual course record is Teage O’Conner’s, at 9:23:19 (2008). Hot day, too. Only Tough Enough winner to have also run sub-15 for 5K. The women’s individual is Pam Smith’s 12:37:36 (1990).

Men’s team is 6:20:53: Robert Hollister, Mike Smith, Don Faith, Randy Twing, and Tom Phillips, 1989.

RUTE Beer takes the mixed record, 7:02, led by Jill Himlan, with Gene Deering, Tyler Hansen, Annie O’Donnell, and Marcedo Mejia. An asterisk, as the course was roughly a mile shorter than normal. Time is better than (but not by much) the previous record. Superfriends ran 7:10 in 2012 (Ricky Ho, Chrystee Bradley, Tim Strand, Mike Shaloob, and Drea McLarty).

The women’s record is 7:36, 2010, TUFF LUV: Drea McLarty, Michelle McToldridge, Chrystee Bradley, Kary O’Brien. (Only four women: a drop at 5:15 race-day morning. Possible race record.)

Three-person men’s team record to Fugawi!?! at 7:06 (2014).

Hall of Fame: Sara Kida, 33 weeks pregnant (roughly eight months).
