Imogene Pass Trail Run - Results and Updates

This morning's start in Ouray - photo by Cindy Brown
An obligatory post for today's Imogene Pass Trail Run. Ouray to Telluride via mountain pass through the San Juans. 10mi and 5,000ft of climbing to the 13,000ft pass, 7 steep and crazy-scenic miles with 4,000 feet of descent into the town of Telluride.

There's some significant travel time involved in running this, and it always falls on Fiestas week (Que Viva!!), but this race really should be on every trail runner's list. Everything awesome about trail running taken up to eleven.

So, early results coming in. Flagstaff, AZ continues their dominance in this Four Corners epic - 2010 champ Jason Wolfe out of Flagstaff takes the men's overall in 2hr 17min 23sec, avenging last year's runner up finish and adding a new age-group course record. Flagstaff's Sara Wagner nails down her third consecutive title in 2:48:32, fourth in five years. The feed below ought to capture all Twitter traffic tagged with #imogenepassrun, it should filter race reports and uploaded images from those on the course today.

Full results are now posted

  1. Andy Stravers from Gallup finished 18th overall summited before 2 hours passed me on the way up. Summited behind Sara Wagner,sucked on down hill finished in 2:56 and change. NM did decent this year. Next year??? Let's kill it NM!

  2. Way to get after it Steven, appreciate the first-person account. The sub-2hr summit is a challenge. Chasing the lead woman to the summit is a challenge - especially when it's Sara Wagner. And that descent can be downright dangerous with the blinding scenery and boulder strewn footing. Man, what an awesome race.

    Cheers, and hope to see you next year in Ouray. -HDD
