The 2009 version of the the Mad-City 100K had one very significant change - It was 31 miles short. The race is usually doubles as the USTAF National Championship for 100K, however, due to some scheduling conflicts the race took one year off (it returns as the 100k National Championship in 2010) and took advantage by offering a 50K.
The past couple of years also offered blizzard-like conditions with cold, wet and windy weather blasting the runners over the 10K loop course. It stands to reason then, that this years shortened race would have near ideal conditions with sunny skies and moderate (for Wisconsin in April anyway...) temperatures.
Julie Treder and Brad Birkholz both toed the line and came through with great performances.
Julie placed fourth in the overall Women's competition and
second in the Women's Open Division. Her time was 4:21:06.
Brad Placed third in the Masters Division and was the seventh male finisher overall clocking 4:14:31.
