Saturday's Crow Pass Crossing was a race for rookies.
Along with race rookie Christy Marvin, who won the women's race, two of the top three men’s finishers were also first-timers.
Marvin finished in 3 hours, 26 minutes, 44 seconds — the second-fastest women’s time in the race’s 30-year history. She was just 24 seconds off the course record (3:26:20) set by nine-time champion Nancy Pease in 1990.
Allan Spangler claimed the men’s title in 3:01:44.
Jessica Vetsch finished second among a field of 36 women in 3:49:59. Vetsch shaved 10 minutes off her time from last year where she also took second as a rookie.
Jamie Bronga placed third in 3:52:04 and was the only other woman to break the four-hour mark.
Race rookies Silas Talbot (3:06:50) and Matt Shryock (3:09:26) placed second and third, respectively, in the men’s race.
