2009 Trail Breaker Marathon

Early April in Wisconsin can bring some sketchy weather - But not this year for the return of the Trail Breaker Marathon in  Waukesha, Wisconsin.  The race was back after a one year hiatus and LPTR's enjoyed great conditions and solid performances.  

The Marathon is held primarily on the paved Glacial Drumlin Trail with one 6-7 mile stint on the Ice-Age trail.  The off-road section should be very familiar for the LPTR crowd as it snakes through Lapham Peak State Park.  The out and back course has a turn-around at the top of the look-out tower - The very one pictured at the top of this blog!  Participants ring a bell at the top and head back down to retrace their steps for the final 13.1 miles. 

LPTRunner and defending champ Bruce Udell led the local contingency, finishing 5th overall with a time of 3:06:24.   Group runners placed 5 in the top 15:

Chaz Heckman      3:14:42   7th
Jim Kischbaum     3:16:32    9th
Ron Bero                 3:26:16   12th
Joel Lammers        3:27:28   13th
