YOUNG AND NOT-SO-YOUNG VICTORIOUS IN XTERRA RACES

Success can come at any age in the XTERRA Trail Run Series.

Dylan JohnsonThe proof came last weekend, when 16-year-old Dylan Johnson (pictured at right) won an XTERRA race in Texas, and 50-year-old Dominic Wyzomirski won an XTERRA race in Ohio.

Johnson, who is a junior at Dripping Springs High School in Dripping Springs, Texas, was the unexpected star of the XTERRA Austin Trail Run on Aug. 21. He didn’t just win his age group, he beat the entire field to claim the title of overall champion for the 18-kilometer race at Emma Long Park in Austin, Texas.

OHIO SERIES COMPLETE FOR 2010

XTERRA Ohio SeriesThe Oak Hill Trail Run was the fifth, and final, race in the 2010 XTERRA Ohio Trail Run Series. The series featured a variety of courses, ranging from 7 kilometers to 18 kilometers.

“What we tried to do was put together a good example of the variety of trails in the area,” Series director Joe Jurczyk said. “Some of the trails were technical and challenging, and some of the others were relatively flat and easy, so the runners who were able to come out for all the races were treated to a little bit of everything.”

All the age-group champions from the Ohio Series received free entry to the XTERRA Trail Run National Championship at Bend, Ore., on Sept. 18.

TEXAS TOO

XTERRA Texas SeriesThe 2010 XTERRA Texas Trail Run Series also concluded last weekend with the XTERRA Austin Trail Run.

The Texas Series featured just three events, but each one offered unique opportunities for both advanced and novice runners. Each of the three Texas events featured a short course and a long course.

“I think it’s important to have different trails because you have different levels of runners,” Texas Series director Mike Carter said. “As much as possible, we like to have three trails: a 5k for beginners or even walkers, and then a 10k because that’s like the next step, and then a 21k for our growing community of distance trail runners.”

All the age-group champions from the Texas Series received free entry to the 2010 XTERRA Trail Run National Championship at Bend, Ore., on Sept. 18.
