2014 The Duel deemed a great success.

There were many changes to this year’s “The Duel” event. Mainly that all running events were held on one day. However, one thing didn’t change – everyone who came out to participate had a great time and praised the support and organization of the event.

Unfortunately, we had some strong winds on the paved trail again this year which slowed everyone down who was looking to post a Boston Qualifying time. However, we are happy to announce that we still had 3 individuals who were able to do just that. Christopher Jones from Southlake, TX ran a 03:14:31.35 beating the required time for his age group by  less than 30 seconds and Sherri Irwin from Norman, OK ran a 03:44:49.45 beating the required time for her age group by just 11 seconds. Then there was David Hague from Keller, TX who ran a 03:17:40.73 smoking his required time by more than 12 minutes. Congratulations to all three of you!

We would also like to congratulate Kevin McCasland of Seminole, TX with a time of 03:09:08.2 and Amy Simmons of Wichita Falls, TX with a time of 03:37:29.32 as our overall male and female winners. They both ran great races. Unfortunately, they both barely missed out on posting qualifying times for Boston. We know this is very disappointing for both of these amazing runners after all the hard work they have put in training, but we know it is only a matter of time before they will accomplish their goals.

Thanks to everyone who came out to participate and/or support the runners, and a great big thank you to the race director, Sandy Monson, and all the volunteers for putting on another great event. Be sure to check the link below for all the results.

The Duel has 3 qualify for Boston!!!

Congratulations to Troy Hibbitts of Bracketville, TX, Jennie Fong of Spark, NV and Amy Ewing of Fort Worth, TX for running Boston Marathon qualifing times on Sunday. It was Troy’s first time to qualify and we are ecstatic that he was able to do it here in Wichita Falls. Troy ran the course in 3:13:04 beating the Boston qualifying standard for the 40-44 age group by just under two minutes. He was not alone in his outstanding performance, the great weather and fast course provided for numerous personal best efforts.

Thanks to everyone who came out and particpated. We hope you had a great time and hope to see you next year. Preparatios for 2014 are already under way. Stay tuned for some exciting changes that we think will make this an even better event next year.

Thanks also to all of the volunteers who helped to put on this unique event. It could not be done without you. The number one comment heard this weekend was that we have the best volunteers, and I couldn’t agree more. THANK YOU!!!
