Double Chubb 50K

Named for the Chubb Trail in Eureka Missouri, The Double Chubb 50K run varies from  gravel service roads to  dirt trails that wind through the hills along the Meramec river.  LPTRunner Joel Lammers was last year's Masters Champion, and Christine Crawford was the 2008 women's champion and current course record holder.

The 2009 version featured a new course and with it, an opportunity for a new course record.  

Despite a wrong turn, Christine dropped 7 minutes off her time from last year.  She again was the top female, taking first place and setting the standard on the new course.    Joel dropped nearly 4 minutes off his time from last year as he finished 5th overall,  and LPTR new-comer, Jim Ricker, pulled in 9th place for another strong showing.

 Christine Crawford  4:34 (First Female)
 Joel Lammers 4:18 (#5 Overall)
 Jim Ricker 4:37 (#9 Overall)

A link to the Official Results including the Masters rankings will be posted as available.
