The Aravaipa Racing Team consists solely of Arizona-based ultra-runners who are performing at a high local and national level. However, they are more than just fast runners, they embody the community and values that Aravaipa Running expects of its representatives. …

Hayley Pollack Race Report

What a night; what a race! The 2017/2018 Across The Years is in the books! 8 National Records, 1 World Best Performance and 1 course record plus many more personal bests and goals met. Thank you to everyone who helps make this event so special: Runners, Crew, Volunteers and Spectators! Ed Ettinghausen could be seen sprinting around the course this morning on a mission. Not just to increase his lead, or secure his 3,000th mile but to surpass Don Winkley’s …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 5.5

Hayley Pollack Race Report

Last in-competition update for Across the Years! 5.5 days of the race are complete and the course is mostly 6-day runners with a mix of determination, zombie-state forward motion, and a few extra-motivated shuffle-runners. It’s one of the most inspiring nights to be out at Camelback Ranch. Ed Ettinghausen is at 420.96 miles and will win the 6-day with that total but still needs 19 more miles for his 3,000th lifetime mile. Iso Yucra is one of the aforementioned shuffle-runners …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 5

Hayley Pollack Race Report

Across The Years just reached the end of day 5 and runners are currently moving into their 122nd hour of the race. Ed Ettinghausen has officially taken the lead in the 6-day with 386.31 miles. Ed is a big numbers guy so he will know he needs 53.47 more miles minimum in order to hit 3,000 lifetime miles but if he keeps moving his lead is solidified. Iso Yucra took a 10 hour break and is now back on course …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 4.5

Hayley Pollack Race Report

In a 6-day race… nothing is certain. Canada’s Dave Proctor has dropped from the 6-day to prevent injury to his knee. While he goes home with 2 new Canadian National records (48-hour and 72-hour) he won’t be going home with the 6-day win which looked all but locked up this morning. All of us at Across the Years hope Dave heals quickly and we will be watching his quest for the TransCanada Speed Record this coming June! Watch the YouTube …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 4

Hayley Pollack Race Report

New Year, New Day! The Across the Years New Year’s Party did not disappoint. Enjoy these photos by Jubilee Paige of our countdown to 2018 celebration: Now For your update: The ‘commanding’ lead that Misty Alessandri had in the 48-hour was cut short by a 6.5 hour break right at the end of her race. Thus allowing Canadian Dennene Huntly to catch up and overtake her for the current win. Dennene ended with 153.26 miles – her longest distance to …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 3.5

Hayley Pollack Race Report

The women’s top 2 in the 24 hour *seem* safe but 3rd is definitely not secure with Kaitlin Reed on pace to do more than 100 miles. Even if she stops at 100 it will still put her on the podium as of today. Record Watch: Pamela Chapman-Markle is looking at the USATF Women’s 60-64 road 24 hour record and would need 106.55+ miles. Pamela already holds the USATF Women’s 60-64 100 mile record with 21:29:00 which she set last …

This breaks Richard Lacouse’s 1881 record of 308.5 miles.  Dave now has 330 miles in 76.5 hours and is moving better than even the hours leading up to this record with 11:30 lap splits. Ed Ettinghausen holds second with a more commanding gap on 3rd than last night with 262 miles. Iso Yucra is 3rd with 225 miles having taken a 10-hour break. Annabel …

2017/2018 Across The Years – Day 2.5

Hayley Pollack Race Report

  62 hours into Across the Years. Warm days, cool nights are the trend and it looks to stay that way the remainder of the race. Not a lot of shuffling happening right at the moment. Australia’s Annabel Hepworth continues to lead the 6-day women with 193 miles and Yolanda Holder remains a strong second with 174 miles.  73-year-old Edda Bauer of Germany has moved back into 3rd place with 160 miles. Her fellow country-woman, Martina Hausmann is 4th with …
