The men’s individual course record is Teage O’Conner’s, at 9:23:19 (2008). Hot day, too. Only Tough Enough ultra winner to have also run sub-15 for 5K. (Currently holds the WR for 100K run entirely barefoot, at 7:13.) The women’s individual is Pam Smith’s 12:37:36 (1990).
Men’s team is 6:21: 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 Schettler).
The women’s record is 7:36, 2010, TUFF LUV: Drea Schettler, Michelle McToldridge, Chrystee Bradley, Kary O’Brien. Only four women: a drop at 5:15 am race-day morning, also an event record. (Honorable mention to Hills +/- One, 4:45 am.)
Three-person men’s team record to Fugawi!?! at 7:06 (2014).
Two-person mixed team record (new course in ’22): Ex’s and O’s, Rachel Entrekin & Ian Seabury, 8:44. Ian pointed out that wearing his TE17 Toad&Co sport shirt was key to excellent performance.
Hall of Fame: Sara Kida, 33 weeks pregnant (roughly eight months).
