ACRR News:

Tuesday night’s weather along the Quemazon Trail in the Western Area was ideal for use by mountain bikers, a flower identification group and 37 walkers and runners competing in the weekly Atomic City Pace Race.

For the pace racers, a one mile course on pavement and sidewalk was available and one and three miles courses on the Satch Cowan and Quemazon Trails required challenging trail negotiation skills. Only three predictors on all courses managed to have errors of 75 seconds or less.  

Duane Marr had the best prediction (21 sec.), followed by Mark Bjorklund (49 seconds) and Joan Williams (75 seconds).  

On the one mile course, Patricia Burnside was the fastest female (9:06) and Adrian Medin was the fastest male (14:55).

On the 3 mile course, Ryan Smeltzer was the fastest male (30:03) and the fastest female was Emily Moore (35:25).

Next week’s pace race, at 6 p.m., will start and finish at the Aquatic Center parking lot on Canyon Road. One and three mile courses will be available. Call 505.672.1639 for more information or visit atomicrunners.com.
