Day after race recap by Race Director, Timo From Madison, Wisconsin:

Patrick Russell immediately took the lead and was never challenged as he ran to victory in the Mad City 50K road race on Saturday. His time of 3:08:28 established the course record for this newly-certified course.

Russell, of Houghton, Michigan, is a former member of the USA national 100K team.

In her first ultramarathon, Julie Spencer, of Baraboo, Wisconsin, won the women's competition in 3:34:45, also a new course record.

Ronaldo Ribeiro, a native of Brazil attending school at the University of Wisconsin, was the second man to finish, a little over a minute ahead of Spencer.

The top masters runners in the race finished fourth and fifth overall. Carolyn Smith, 43, is a veteran of USA national ultramarathon teams. In contrast, Tom Kielpinski, 48, had never run a race of 50 kilometers before.

The final finisher in the race was Kris Hinrichs, who was awarded bib no. 1 in honor of the selection of the race she directs - the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon - as the National Road Race of the Year in 2008.

Ideal weather conditions - temperatures into the upper 40's with partly cloudy skies and virtually no wind - contributed to the fast times and high finishing rate. Competitors ran a 10-kilometer circuit around Lake Wingra and through the idyllic University of Wisconsin Arboretum; this circuit is Madison's most popular 10K race course. Sections of the course are moderately hilly. Some sections of the course are moderately hilly. The Mad City 50K solo event is run concurrently with a relay race with teams of up to five runners, each running one loop of the course.

The Mad City race had been the 100 kilometers in distance in the two previous years, and will return as the USA 100K national championship again in 2010.
