FOUR of the six Trail Mix Series races are complete for 2016. The updated 2016 Trail Mix Standings are online now (Women’s | Men’s). Each column is sortable and the categories and runner names are searchable.
Over 150 runners are “in the running” for completing the Trail Mix in 2016 — 52 different women and 112 different men have participated in at least two of the first four Trail Mix Series events so far in 2016!
Some leaders are beginning to emerge – for the women’s series, Chelsea Ellis is in the lead after winning two of her three races. Jennifer Morello has come on strong in the last two races with a second place finish at Pavement Ends and a first place finish at Sarah Bishop. Lindsey Obrig is a close third. Teren Block is the highest series competitor who has run all four races in 2016.
For the men’s series, Nicholas Roosa has won the last two races and vaulted into first overall with a perfect 100 average. Victor Da Costa Mendoza is second with a win in A Mild Sprain and a high finish in the Loop. They haven’t met head to head yet and it may come down to the last two races if they do. Luis Francisco, winner of the 2015 Leatherman’s Loop, is a close 3rd. Virgil Bretz is fourth and has run in every race in the 2016 series.
Any runners with four races completed have qualified for their automatic Leatherman’s Loop 2017 Lottery selection. Runners with three races complete need to finish either Run The Farm or Raven Rocks to qualify. Any runner with two Trail Mix races needs to finish both Run The Farm and Raven Rocks to qualify for the Trail Mix Series 2016.
