Race Recap: Nally, Keyser Win Rock Canyon Half Marathon

December 6, 2011 |

Pueblo’s Rock Canyon Half Marathon got off to a slick start on Saturday. The ice and snow hardly hindered Denver’s Daniel Nally and Fort Collins’ Ellie Keyser who won the men’s and women’s divisions of the race, which capped registration at 750 entrants.

Nally finished the course in 1:12:44. Peter Maksimow was second in 1:15:39; Troy French of New Hampshire took third place in 1:15:52. Neal Oseland was fourth overall and first master in 1:21:23.

Twenty-two year old Keyser, fresh off her senior cross country season at CSU, ran a blazing 1:23:13.7. Tracy Thelen was second in 1:29:32. Rochelle Persson snagged the top master and third overall spot in 1:30:21.
