Rocky Hill Ranch 50K & 25K
Smithville, TX
April 26, 2003

by Joe Prusaitis, RD

Rocky Hill Ranch 50K & 25K Trail Runs always seems to start summer for us in the Texas Hill Country. Our 3rd year was not much different than the other two. A damp mist on the ground led to a very comfortable start at sunrise for 225 runners. All frost is removed by Fat Chuck's Demise in the first mile.  The second loop was much hotter as temps soured to the low 90s.

Matt Harrington 3:51:00 seemed to have way to much fun on his way to topping his own course record.  Bill Gardner 4:06:30 and Todd Gerlach 4:07:42 finished second & third.  Megan Haley 4:51:06 won first female. Bridget DelaRosa 5:12:08 & Rebecca Watkins 5:48:18 finished second & third. 

Steve Sisson 1:44:06 won the 25K, followed by Ray Woodall 1:47:20 & Jorge Alvarado 1:49:31 in second & third. Julee Pollock 2:04:19 lowered the course record she set last year. She was followed by Bonnie Howarth 2:08:42 & Lynn Doelger 2:08:54, all under the previous course record. 

RHR prides itself in its care for the runners, and again provided the best in on course service. Bottles were filled with ice & drinks, ice bags were handed out, popcicles, home-made colaches from our very own running chef Slammin Sammy at Sammy's Kitchen (mile 10). Sam also cooked up brisket & sausage for the volunteers but also for any runner who wanted to put on some weight. Joyce took care of the Naked Ape station (mile 5), while Doug managed the finish aid station. Brice entertained at the crossroads water stop. Chris, Leslie, & Kreutz Photography wandered the course taking hundreds of pictures, our sag bike riders assisted any who were confused and to keep us informed where everyone was. Carroll handled registration. Kyle provided efficient results, Jim is our head GoFer, and Jack provided everything else, including the large shade tent at the finish. There were many others. The scope of what all takes place fills a small book. The mood and camaraderie between runners, workers, and crews is truly an awesome feeling. It feels so good that I think I'll do it again next year.
