A quick post to share a video of Aliza Lapierre, of Williston, VT, breaking the women's 50-mile course record at the 2009 Stone Cat Trail Race. She finished strongly in 7:19:19, crushing Christine Daly's 2008 course record of 8:06:14.

Amy Lane ran an impressive 50 miles for second woman in a time of "F:AS:T!" with a smile and no-worse-for-the-wear.
Her 7:54:40 ALSO broke the previous woman's course record!
RESULTS for 2009 Stone Cat Trail Races
On the men's side, Brian Rusieki, from Leeds, MA, broke Leigh Schmitt's 2008 50-mile record of 6:30:08 with a close and "comfortable" 6:27:37. Leigh was right behind Brain with 6:32:06. What a full fall of long races and quick paces for these leaders!
Leigh wraps up another Stone Cat 50.
More postings about the race and the Stone Kitten Posse coming soon...
