Ben VanHoose was "The Man" of the Day as he successfully defended the his marathon title in a great time of 3:25:48. The 29 year old from Greenville Michigan conquered the trails which included the new "Little Chuck" Hill and a wide wide array of challenging trails to say the least. "Toughest Marathon this side of the Mississippi" was the quote of the day. Rich Powers(m-47) from Rochester, Michigan...ran a great master's time of 3:27:01 good enough for second overall. Bill Sparling(m-61)from Sparlingville, Michigan...was the Grand Master Champion with a time of 4:58:18. Laura Howell(f-37) from Grandville Michigan was the overall woman's champion with a time of 4:05:26. Melissa Bergeron(f-47) from Norton Shores Michigan won the master's title with a time of 4:42:33 and Lois Berkowitz(f-62) proved that the third time is indeed a charm as she won the Grand Master Division with a time of 6:43:10. Kudos go out to all the brave souls who were lucky enough to experience an "icing on the cake" made to order passing by thunder storm...at least it got the mud off! The sun did come back out by the time the last finisher (Eugene DeFronzo...75 years young) stopped the clock in 10 hours and 23 minutes and some change. All in all runners took advantage of the cooler temperatures, soaked in the river, enjoyed some good old fart hospitality and got their butts kicked by Little Chuck and the rest of the Old Farts Marathon Course.
