2010 Lt. JC Stone 50K

by: Lou D’Angelo, Race Director

For the 3rd year now, the Hampton Rotary Club hosted a wildly successful 50K Ultra at North Park.  The Lt. JC Stone 50K race boasts great support, enthusiastic volunteers, generous sponsors, the largest finisher medal in UltraRunning, generous cut-off times, a great course, an indoor facility for the start/finish area, private parking for runners and their friends and a pizza party, oh, and this year two technical fabric shirts to all runners.  We think this is the perfect race for the first time ultrarunner or the seasoned vet coming out to run with old friends.

Both the male and female 2009 winners returned to run.  This year we have a new male winner, Andrew Bartle, who smashed the course record by 8 minutes. Connie Gardner defended her two prior victories and still owns the course record.

The race took place under clear skies and cool temperatures. The conditions were near perfect for the first 4 hours which really helped the faster runners.  The day heated up and temperatures reached 70 degrees. The spectators loved it and the runners didn’t seem to mind all that much.

The top three men pushed each other for the first 6 miles with only 1 second separating them.  Andrew Bartle and Doug Basinski (2009 winner) began to pull away over the next 10 miles.  That was when Andrew Bartle demonstrated how consistent he intended to be on this loop course.  By mile 21 he had opened up nearly a 4 minute lead and went on to increase his lead over the next 10 miles to finish 7 minutes in front of Doug.  Chris Rotelli, Ed Housel and Bob Pokorny rounded out the top 5 male finishers, all of which were under 4 hours.

Connie Gardner had opened a small lead on the next two women racers, Mary Kreis and Shannon Cutting after the first 6 miles. She pressed her advantage each lap and had a 3 minute lead by mile 16. Connie finished 6 minutes in front of Mary, while Mary was able to maintain a 2 minute margin over Shannon.  Stacy Kopchak and Michelle Ellery (who happen to be training partners) finished 4th and 5th among this fast female group.

Among the 47 finishers this year we had 19 runners that had run at least one JC Stone 50k come back to run with us again, and we had 18 first time ultramarathon runners. It was a lot of fun for those of us who remember that feeling of finishing our first ultra to watch these newly minted ultrarunners enjoy their successful debut into ultrarunning.
