Blake Wins in Austria

Masters Mountain running world championships – Telfes Austria 09-07-14

By Dave Dunham

A number of athletes with ties to New England visited Austria to take part in the Masters Mountain running world championships.  Each 5 year age groups started 15 minutes apart. The M35-M50 started in the town of Telfes and covered a 11.5 km (7.1 miles) course that climbed 1,200 meters (3,900’).  The M55-M75 age groups started at the Mittlestation covering a 7.2km course with 760 meters of climb (4.4 miles and 2,500’ of climb).

Eric Blake, who runs for La Sportiva, and is based in West Hartford CT, was the winner of the M35 running 59:31.  No other runner finished within 3 minutes of Blake’s time which bodes well for him as he heads to Italy for the World Mountain running championships.  Peter Maksimow (Inov-8) finished in fourth place in the M35 in 1:03:21.  Maksimow runs for Team Colorado but lived in New England for a number of years when he competed as a member of the Central Mass Striders.

Francis Burdett (GSH) finished in 10th place in the M45 running a 1:10:18.  Dave Dunham (CMS) finished in 8th place in the M50 with a 1:10:50.  Len Hall (GCS) took 34th place in the M60 running 55:38.

Team USA fielded a complete team (three runners) in the M50.  Dunham teamed up with Craig Kenworthy (WA) and Garry Harrington (CO) to take 7th place out of 16 countries.  In all over 800 runners competed from 29 countries.
