Great job everyone at MoMa!

Even though I did a lot of training on the course, I forget how tough this race really is every year!  

Happy to say that all of us made it across the finish line though!

Great job!

Congrats all on completing this super race.
Chris - ha ha. You got lost and have to wait another long year to beat my time.

Believe Len also made wrong turn.

Another great performance jess.

Rob - what happened? Expected faster from you my friend. You even let the the ging beat you. Did the beard weigh you down?

Star of course was Julian. Won the damn thing and only been running ~3years.

Big fun guys. Keep it up.

Great job everyone. I'm still pissed I had to work. That's two of two years missed for work. I could have given Rob someone to beat! See you all in the woods soon.

Great job everybody! I agree with Chris, even though we trained in Ringwood a couple of times, I under estimated how hard this course was! The last 2 miles were more a mix of climbing and bouldering than running!!!!
I also wanted to thank you guys for your support through the training for my first ultra. You are all responsible for my success! So thank you! Or, CHEERS I should say!

It has been a fun adventure - Next one in November!

Congratulations, everyone!  I'm always impressed and inspired by your dedication!

Someone needs to my woods and kick me in the ass.

I had a good race, felt good, no real excuses. I underestimated the last 10 miles in my pacing. Was doing well up to then, on pace for almost a 7-7:15 but not enough long runs and my fitness level just couldn't push any harder on that part of the course. The good thing is I learned a bit about better nutrition, and better pacing. I think I paced it pretty well but until you have a lot of these races under your belt, I feel it's a crapshoot.  

P.S. I DID have Seb through mile 22ish....then lost him. ;)

Good job yall! It was great to see everyone's hard work come to fruition. Again the toe socks saved me from killer blisters. Half the climbs I was like, I'm running in place.

Beard actually made him faster, worth like 1 sec per mile I hear.

1st time doing MOMA & was doing great. Was on pace for sub 6. 1 course mistake & cost me big time. Will get it next year.

Definitely Tom!  Also, Jessi for setting a new female course record.  Both very impressive performances.

About Rob,  once you get through his trash talk and big clams, he actually performed really well.  As you all know this is a very very tough course, and I  have no doubt that pre-boulder Rob would not even have come close to a eight hour (or perhaps even a nine hour finish).

Was great seeing everyone out there - lots of great performances this year and excellent weather.

I'm pretty sure Len would have come in 10-15 minutes ahead of me if he hadn't gone way off course.  Sub-6 should be a piece of cake next time around.

Made me glad I went out there a few times last month (and took a map) - made 2 wrong turns but caught them quickly and lost fewer than 10 minutes.

Can't wait for the next big race!!

Great job everyone.  Maybe one day if I can get enough volunteers I can get out there and run the race with you.
