August 18, 2012 Race Results: The MARATHON

This years race started and finished in downtown Lowell by the Showboat. Runners were greeted with a mile of flatness before they hit the trail and the real running began. Reality set in quick by mile 2 that this was not going to be your ordinary race as runners started to climb up the trail. By the time runners were half way up the first real hill named "Custer's Last Stand" (a.k.a. Mulnix's Madness) the last thing on the runner's mind was not whether or not they were still on Boston Qualifing Time...but rather what am I getting into and how bad is this course going to be! Oh and then the runners reached Mile 2. (man did Rick Ganzi and Mark Janosky miss a good one today!) By Mile 6 race leaders have separated themselves from the main pack and the race was on. Two time defending Ben VanHoose of Greenville, Michigan was on firing on all cylinders as he entered the toughest stretch of the course. Last year's runner up Rich Power of Rochester Michigan had to again settle for 2nd overall (first master...3:41:44) as Ben was unbeatable today running a 3:28:06. These trails might have to be renamed BEN'S Trails as he swept up the competition earlier in the year at the Old Fart Ultra 50K. Lisa Flowers completed the "Greenvlle" Sweep as she won the overall women's title in 4:40:04. Women's Master Champ was Barb Isom of Howell Michigan in 4:57:42. Grand Master Men's Champion Marve LaFler of Ionia Michigan (5:04:12) shown just how tough an Old Fart can be as all the yougsters read the words "Old Fart" on the back of his calf as he cruised in 14th overall! Suanne Kozloski (f-62) greeted the mud and hills to a Grand Master victory in 6:33:44 after being talked into running the full at the last minute! Big time KUDO's go out to the Wayne State Men's and Women's Cross Country Team for doing an outstanding job manning the aid stations. There was some questioning as to whether or not their Coach Rick Cummins was purposely sand bagging it out there to keep his team in the field longer because he was almost an hour slower than his 2010 result! Thanks to everyone and praise to God and Jesus that we had great weather and nobody got hurt or lost for too long! This year's results should entice a lot more runners who want to finish in the top ten by looking at the time in the results below....but don't be fooled...This is the Old Farts and we already are eliminating the McPherson road stretch and the zig zag grass lands for next year as we introduce a new stretch of trail called "THE JASON" yes you will feel the "Power of the Jason" at the end next year...as he put it "there's a power line stretch that just has to be run!" We tend to get a lot of runner's who have run a lot of marathons and as one runner put it when asked about the course..."this is one you talk to your friends about because you can't believe how tough it is"...then he said with a big smile...See you next year!
