Thomas Chaston, Nate Lumaye win Summit Trail Running Series French Gulch 5K, 8K

BRECKENRIDGE — Eighty runners took to the 5-kilometer short course, and 55 runners competed on the 8K long course during Wednesday’s second event of the 2019 Summit Trail Running Series: the French Gulch 5K/8K in Breckenridge.

The 5K, or 3.1-mile, race began at the B&B trailhead and continued onto Turk’s Trail, Reiling Dredge Trail, Minnie Mine Trail, X10U8 and French Gulch Road before finishing back at the B&B trailhead. The race consisted of 459 feet of elevation gain with a max elevation of 10,326 feet.

The short course race was won by 13-year-old Nate Lumaye in a time of 18 minutes and 5 seconds, 20 seconds ahead of the women’s short course winner on the day, 12-year-old Bethany Michalak (18:25). The overall short course podium was completed by 15-year-old Taylor Mallery (18:56).

The 8K, or 4.9-mile, race also began and ended at the B&B trailhead but took runners over Sidedoor Trail, the Prospect Trail and Gold Run Road. The long course required runners to scale 652 feet of total gain with a maximum elevation of 10,291 feet.

In the end, 19-year-old Thomas Chaston ran away from the competition with a time of 28:28, which was more than a minute faster than second-place finisher and 17-year-old Colin Szuch (29:44). The podium was rounded out by Summit County local, and the winner of the first Summit Trail Running Series event of the season two weeks ago, Mason Mitchell (31:10). Katie Rainsberger, 20, was the top long course female finisher on the day with a time of 31:35, good for fifth-place overall.

The series will return at 6 p.m. July 10 with the Baker’s Tank 7K/11K.
