Arias, Hoffman Shine at XTERRA Rock Dallas 15K
On a very windy night in Flower Mound, Texas, Sergio Arias and Morgan Hoffman won the XTERRA Rock Dallas 15K Trail Run on Saturday, May 27th. Arias came through in 1:20:17, almost five minutes faster than runner up Jonathan Moody. Hoffman won the women's division in 1:53:21, less than a minute in front of Ashley Perrigo.
“This was an extremely challenging run,” said the 33-year old Arias, “But also thrilling. There were steep drops and obstacles that tested my footwork the entire way.”
Arias ran behind the lead pack for almost half the race. “I took the lead when visibility started to get tough and it was hard to prepare for the terrain ahead,” he said. “Once I was in the lead, I could see and finally stop worrying about turning my ankle.”
Trevin Bolding won the 5K in 29:37 and Tiffany Bruce won for the women in 37:10.
The race didn’t start until 8pm, so headlamps were necessary to navigate the North Shore Mountain Bike Trail near Lake Grapevine.
