Fellow Runners,

The Grand Slam of Ultrarunning award recognizes those who complete four of the oldest 100 mile trail runs in the U.S.  On Saturday, September 9, Kelly Barber finished the Wasatch Front 100, his fourth hundred-miler of the summer, to win this award.  He is one of only 11 people to accomplish this feat in 2017, and he racked up the third fastest total time for all four races.

Another 100-miler took place at the Marin Headlands on Saturday.  Ian Grettenberger won the race outright, beating out the next competitor by 24 minutes.  At the same event, Martin Sengo ran the 75-miler, Emmet Rahl ran the 50-miler, and Tara Steinmetz ran the marathon.

Closer to home, the Lagoon Valley trail run was held in Vacaville, with Cristina Ramirez taking fifth place in the 30K, Randy Green running the 10K, and new member Nick Harrod taking third place in the 5K.

A big GVH crowd showed up in Sacramento for the Buffalo Stampede 10-miler.  Pam Runquist led the club with a finish time of 1:06:00 and took second in her age group.  Eric Nichol and Beth Bourne took third in their respective age groups, and Howard Ferris won his age group, followed closely by Allison Alcalay.

On Sunday, September 10, Ernie Shimizu and Peter Friederich ran the Run to Remember 5K, with Peter taking second in his age group.

We had full teams at the Golden Gate cross country meet in San Francisco, complemented by visiting honorary club members from Inayuma, Japan.  Annie Ciernia, Joannie Siegler, and Melissa Poole led the women's team.  Inayuma visitor Makoto Kato led the masters men, followed by Bryan Thoreson and Jim Farrar.  The open men's team was led by Steve Andrews, Zach Bonner, and Mark Felice.
