Ben VanHoose...31...of Greenville, Michigan put on a running clinic as he successfully defended his title for a FOURTH ...yes a FOURTH TIME in a row! His 3:35:41 was very impressive on what some would say was the hardest, meanest, toughest verision of the Old Farts Marathon to date. Barb Isom...45...of Howell, Michigan and last year's master champ, ascended to the Overall Women's title with a 4:51:48. What's more inpressive is that Barb not only ran 6+ minutes faster than last year on an easier course but she finished in an impressive 10th place Overall!!! Rich Power...49...of Rochester, Michigan successfully defended his master crown with a 3:53:49 and Kelly DeBaar...43...of Ada, Michigan was the Women's Master Champion with a 4:58:07. Grand Master Titles went to Roger Heacock...61...of Rapid City, South Dakota in 5:45:59 and Suzanne Kozloski...63...from Grand Rapids, Michigan won the women's title in 6:45:19.

This year's course was back at the Fallasburg Park where runner's encountered the massive hills and one of a kind terrain traversing up Dorothy's Ridge, surviving the Scary Larry, Sucking Wind on the Ed, Dreading the Fred and getting their butts kicked twice by Little Chuck. Lucky for the runners we had near perfect weather so the runners who came from all parts of the country to tackle this Old Farts Marathon Challenge went away with a sense of pride and accomplishment as they finished what most said without a doubt was by far their toughest marathon they ever run but also the coolest one most unique one that kicked their butts...way to go Old Farts!

We had a successful day today with great weather; only a little vandalism out on the course...NO Coach did not put out all those crazy sticks on the path just past mile three and vandals also stold the rope off The Fred...other than that the course trails were left alone...if your name is misspelled or something is not right above please send out an email to coachdroski@gmail.com and we will fix it...thanks to all and we will see you in 2014 when we unleash the beast with a revamped Dorothy's Ridge calling it a trip through OZ...so beware, be very scared and don't let Witch Hill get the best of You!
