74 starters, 53 finishers


Below are the results of the 9th annual running of the EFA 50k. Thanks to all of the runners and volunteers for participating on a beautifully sunny and comfortable late winter day. Congratulations to the finishers, and in particular our new course record holder, Dave Frazier, who was able to break 5 hours on this very challenging course. The women’s field was led by Angela Russell. Best blood was definitively won by Birgit Mitchell, and First Aid Awards were won by three runners who helped ensure Birgit made it back to Elizabeth Furnace. Magellen Awards were won by a number of runners for missing the same ridgeline turn. They can be determined by a close examination of the splits between the first and second aid stations.
