Leuck and Glassman Win Bergen Peak Half Marathon

Nick Leuck dominated the grueling Bergen Peak Half Marathon on Saturday, Aug. 25, running the 13.1-mile trail race to the top of Bergen Peak in 1 hour, 56 minutes and 45 seconds. Leuck finished almost seven minutes ahead of second-place finisher Andrew Fields, who ran the race in 2:03:30.

Kendra Glassman ran away from the women's field, completing the course in 2:09:49, well ahead of second-place woman Amanda Martin's 2:13:11 effort.

Ninety-seven people competed in the race, which was the fourth event in the 2018 Evergreen Trail Racing Series, five races on challenging mountainous terrain in and around Evergreen put on by Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD).

Only one race remains in the 2018 Evergreen Trail Racing Series, the Fall EverGold 10-Miler on Oct. 6. The Fall EverGold is an out-and-back race in Lair O' the Bear Open Space Park in Idledale that takes runners along Bear Creek and up the mountain toward Pence Park before descending to the finish.
