A bunch of course records fell at Saturday’s Jemez Mountain Trail Runs.
The 2012 JMTR event, in its seventh year, took place Saturday. Runners started on North Mesa, wound their way toward the Valles Caldera and back in three different distances.
Diana Finkel of South Fork, Colo., set a new all-time best in the women’s 50-mile competition, but would need that performance to hold off a top local athlete, Erica Baron, to take this year’s women’s title.
Finkel finished the 50-mile race in 9 hours, 26 minutes, 29 seconds. Baron posted a time of 9:29:17. Both marks bested the previous record in the women’s 50-miles, set by Darcy Africa in 2007.
