Prairie Series 7 Marathons in 7 States in 7 Days, July 16-22, 2017

posted Jul 23, 2017, 5:20 PM by Gay Renouf

Tania Diener and Jan Steenkamp have done it again! Last year they amazed us with their feat of doing seven marathons in seven states in seven days: this year, they equalled that accomplishment, but with some additional challenges. The event started with a marathon in Wahpeton ND, and successively moved through Breckenridge MN, Baltic SD, Sioux City IA, Sioux City NE, Hiawatha KS, and St Joseph MO. Tania and Jan ran together, posting identical times every day that ranged from Day 1's 5:52:35 to Day 6's 7:35:57. The courses were generally out and backs - often the couple had to complete 10 or 20 out and backs to complete the distance. But the repetitiveness of the courses were not matched by the people they met, including world record holder Larry Macon!  The biggest challenge, as might be expected of races in the US prairies in July, was the heat. Day 1 was a not-too-horrible temperature of high-20's, but Day 4 in Sioux City actually reached 43 C!

Tania also reached her 50th marathon on Day 4 on that hottest day!  Congrats to Jan and Tania!!!

Canada Man Extreme Triathlon, Lac Megantic, QC, July 8, 9, 2017

posted Jul 10, 2017, 4:33 PM by Gay Renouf

For those multipart athletes for whom an Ironman is just not hard enough - there is the International Ironman Extreme series, and two of our members are just crazy enough to do one. Milos Kostic and Philippe Lacroix just finished the Canada Man in Lac Megantic this past weekend!

Each stage tries to be more difficult than a typical Ironman. In the water, the athletes had to swim in the dark. Milos reports dodging near-invisible buoys, waves hitting him in the face, and surviving debilitating cramps.

The bike was 180 km of thousands of meters of climbing, some well over 10% grade. The marathon length run finished with 12 km of just plain meanness. Milos reports "tangled roots, mud that sucked your shoes off, near vertical sections - all in the dark".

Philippe and Milos were helped by hugely supportive crews and both medalled! Philippe finished in 18:16 and was 3rd Man in the 55 year category; Milos finished in 20:44:38 - first in the Men's 70+ category.

Sinister 7 100 Miler, Crowsnest Pass AB, July 8, 9, 2017

posted Jul 9, 2017, 4:28 PM by Gay Renouf   [ updated Jul 10, 2017, 4:33 PM ]

The Sinister 7, a mountain trail race renowned for its difficulty, got more difficult this year. Organizers added to the length to make it 100 miles (161 km) compared to its 146 km length a few years ago; increased the amount of climbing to 6400 m of elevation gain and loss; and reduced the cutoff time to a very tight 30 hours. Then Mother Nature added her own challenges, with temperatures of over 30 degrees in the shade. The race had only a 18% finishing rate this year. Our Regina heroes, Jon Paradowski and Mathieu Ludlow managed over 12 hours on the trail, but had to concede to the mountain this year. 

Regina had one team entered from the Jaleta Pacers. Shaun Hesse ran three legs (1, 2 and 7); Rick Minett, Tracy Fisher, Angela Stolz, and Gerry Nagy came 6th in the highly competitive Mixed Relay division in a time of 19:32:38. Congrats!
