2011 Bennington Monument Results

Allrightythen, so the X Gym stomped another stair climb. No big surprise I guess. No big surprise either that our team members reset to course records too. Justin Stewart got it for the males and Kourtney Dexter got it for the females. I did well too, taking a (distant) 2nd place overall behind the my cyborg teammate, Justin. Michael Karlin (pictured here far left) won his age group as well, running his fastest time to date up this Bennington monstrosity.

Tim Van Orden was only 9 seconds slower than his best time up this staircase, despite racing in the New England trail running championships – and WINNING the masters division by the way, making him the state champ. Then he ran from that finish line to his car, drove an hour to Bennington, hopped back out of his car and ran up the monument (so he missed picture time).
