Start of the Big Mountain Trail Run Half Marathon

Here is a good look at the start of the inaugural Big Mountain Trail Run Half Marathon start.
The Boulder Running Company's Greg Reindl, 27, of Denver, charged to the win in on Saturday in Cheyenne Cañon . Reindl chased Tommy Manning, 36, for the first five miles as the course ascended some steep pitches, then made his move on a descent of High Drive.
"I just used my long strides to get by him," Reindl said. "On the trails I'm better on the downhills than I am going up."
Reindl, who said he prefers road racing (5K and 10K) to trails, finished in 1 hour, 22 minutes, 52 seconds. The Colorado Running Company/Inov-8 duo of Manning and Peter Maksimow, 33, ran home in second and third places respectively. Manny posted a 1:24:19 with Maksmow crossing the line 1:25:28.
In the women's race. Amy Friedman, 36, took her second victory on the trails in as many weeks. She won Saturday's half marathon in 1:38:30, with Kelli Lusk, 42, clocking 1:46:46 for second place. Katie Katalan, 42, finished third in 2:03:38. Friedman, who teaches overseas, claimed the XTERRA 24K title at Cheyenne Mountain State Park last week.
