(Hudson, WI - September 5, 2009) The ninth edition of this annual classic drew approximately 600 participants and was contested under near perfect conditions. The race was won by Afton's Kurt Becker, 43, and Andover's Sara Hermanson, 32, both of whom were slightly more than two minutes faster than their closest rivals. It was the 2nd victory of Hermanson's young multi career.

The Age Group Performance of the Day belonged to Leeann Franz, 50, of Chanhassen. Franz was the 8th women to cross the finish line. Her time--1:17:18--would have won both the 40-44W and 45-49W categories.
