Petra McDowell and Erica Baron were the winners of two of the three races at this weekend’s Jemez Mountain Trail Runs.
The Jemez Mountain Trail Runs were Saturday. The eighth-annual event included a 50-mile race, a 50-kilometer race and a half-marathon.
McDowell, of Los Alamos, finished the 50K race in 5 hours, 44 minutes to earn the women’s title in that race. She was the only woman to finish the race in under 6-1/2 hours, easily topping Albuquerque’s Aimee Hoyt for the women’s title.
Baron , another local competitor, was the top-finishing woman in Saturday’s half-marathon.
Baron easily won the women’s title in that race with her time of 1:50:36. She finished more than 10 minutes ahead of Kay Ulrich, also from Los Alamos, who was the runner-up in that race.
