WENATCHEE — Barry Hodges put his foot down — literally — and never looked back in capturing the Horse Lake Half-Marathon Trail Run men’s title on Saturday morning in the Wenatchee Foothills.

The Cashmere runner completed the 13.1-mile course in 1 hour, 36 minutes and 30 seconds to beat runner-up Butch Lane of Wenatchee by more than 13

minutes. Jared Purcell of Farmington, N.M., was third in 1:54:13.

The women’s half-marathon race went to Ellensburg’s Jody Chinchen, who was clocked in 1:48:42. A pair of Wenatchee runners were second and third respectively — Selina Danko finished in 1:54:28 and Chelan Pauly in 1:57:19.

In Horse Lake’s other trail race — a 5-Miler — the men’s title was won by Ross Lindell in 35 minutes and 57 seconds and the women’s title by Wenatchee’s Sarah Barkley in 39:36. Lindell was followed across the finish line by Kerry Farrell of Federal Way (36:35) and Doug Wood of Wenatchee (36:43). Barkley bested Amy Sheehan of Wenatchee (41:45) and Jillian Reiner of Wenatchee (47:19).

The third-annual Horse Lake Trail Runs were held under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s and 60s at race time. The event, held on the sprawling Horse Lake Reserve owned by the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, attracted a field of 187 athletes. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Land Trust, with proceeds being used to build and maintain trails in the Foothills.

RunWenatchee, which organizes the race, added the upper stretches of the Apricot Crisp Trail to the half-marathon course this year. That allowed for one complete loop of the property. Last year, runners had to double back before finishing.

The half-marathon features about 2,500 feet of elevation gain. The 5-mile course has about 600 feet of gain.

“I loved the new (half-marathon) course,” said Danko, who finished second in the women’s half-marathon. “With the early flowers in the lower Foothills this season, it was nice to see the upper reaches of the Apricot Crisp Trail where the bloom of lupine and balsamroot is still a real show-stopper. I saw at least one runner pause to snap a picture or two.

“I also liked getting the bulk of the climbing done at the beginning of the race,” Danko said. “I like to run all-out on the downhill sections and it was nice to have a long sustained downhill to look forward to as a reward for the work of getting to the turnaround.”

Race director Joel Rhyner said starting the half-marathon about 10 minutes before the 5-mile run helped create some distance between runners.

He said the runners he spoke to — including ones from outside the region — were impressed with the event.

“The volunteers were great. That was one thing the runners said,” Rhyner added. “And people were blown away by the property.”

    Thanks Run Wenatchee and Crew! Great day, great run.

  • Rick Mueller May 16th, 2015

    I believe there was some inaccuracy with my finishing time, when I crossed the line the clock read 40:49 and I finished just after Josh Parker who placed 11th. Also, my running partner, Heather Hirschi, does not appear to be shown at all. It was a great race and I hope this helps things get settled a little more!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the race. The colorful bottle opener/medal for finishing the race was way cool! Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors for making this event possible. I especially loved the fresh baked cinnamon rolls from Great Harvest Bakery.
    This was my first time running the Horse Lake Trail Race. I definitely plan to do it again next year.
