Categories: Guest Connection Media Center

The 5th annual Uphill Challenge was run in near perfect conditions at Mt. Hood Meadows Saturday, and it showed as nine category records were set including a new fastest time for the event. Mike Allen blazed uphill in a time of 9:32:16, more than a minute and 17 seconds faster than the course record set the inaugural year by Bernard Seeger. The fastest woman was Kayla Moore with  time of 11:42:05. 

A field of 42 took the challenge, ranging in age from 3 years old to 68. Those setting category records (and who will be added to the Uphill Challenge Leaderboard) were:
