Small and Schneider Win Steamboat Springs Marathon

Gabriel Small and Amy Schneider should be pleased. Both runners improved upon last year’s performance at the scenic Steamboat Springs Marathon and were rewarded with a win in the male and female divisions of Sunday’s 30th running of the race.

Small turned in a 2:42:41 on the scenic course, besting his 2010 third place finishing time by 10 minutes. Craig’s Todd Trapp was second in 2:51:02; Andrew Maxwell was third in 2:54:12.

Schneider (feature image) also ran a faster time, finishing in 3:10:11 and won the race for the second year in a row. Becca Ward of Washington State was second place in 3:23:18; Colorado Springs’ Stephanie Meredith was third in 3:29:11.

The front runners of the women’s half marathon field were tightly packed. Caroline Szuch of Evergreen won the race in 1:30:16. Deirdre Pepin, running on home turf in Steamboat Springs, took second (1:30:39) and Lakewood’s Carrie Zografos was third in 1:31:38.

Boulder’s William Edwards won the men’s half in 1:15:30, nearly four minutes ahead of master’s runner Todd Straka (1:19:01). Denver’s Daniel O’Connell was third in 1:21:59.

The top three men in the 10k were Nick Sunseri (34:15), Patrick Barrett (39:04) and Shawn Scholl (41:07). Granby’s Gretta Fosha led the females running 42:40. Steph Scholl was second (43:08) and Eileen McCann was third (43:29).
