The Danby Down & Dirty concludes our 2017 trail running season. Thank you to all who ran today and at any of our other trail races this year. Shout out to Andy Jordan, who is stepping down as Danby race director after several years at the helm. Thank you, Andy, for all your hard work over the years!
The weather this year was warmer than usual for early October in Ithaca, and the trails were pretty dry, but no new course records were set. Stay tuned for the 2017 Stonehead, Pebblehead, and Boulderhead rankings, coming soon.
10K winners were Paul Gannett in 48:39 and Anna Gannett in 53:45. In the mens 20K, Kristofor Norberg of Tuscon, Arizona, won in 1:36:10 to edge out local runner Jed Sheckler. Perennial pebblehead Nora McIver-Sheridan ran 1:47:07 to win the womens 20K.
